Robert Dauber (b. Prague, c.1922 - d. Dachau, 1945) experienced the war years as a prisoner in the Terezin concentration camp before deportation to Dachau, where he perished. A talented pianist and cellist, he played the cello in Terezin's orchestra, including performances of "Brundibar". The "Serenata" for violin is his only surviving composition.
