13. Dick Kattenburg (1919-1944)
Dutchman Kattenburg spent years in hiding during the Second World War. Like Anne Frank, he was eventually betrayed and sent to Auschwitz where he died in 1944. For more than half a century only one of his works - a sonata for flute - was known. But then Kattenburg’s niece searching the attic of her mother’s house found a box with dozens of other works, most of them outstanding.
