You can read about this German girl in a recent news story: https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/winter-olympics-german-ice-skater-performs-music-schindlers-list-081233001.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Germany’s Nicole Schott took to the ice Friday, putting forth a beautiful figure skating performance with just one point of contention, the chosen music was the John Williams’ classic score from the film “Schindler’s List.” It’s a touchy subject to say the least, a German skate-dancing to “Schindler’s List”?

The song from the film carries such a crippling weight of mass-genocidal-Nazi tones, that it’s very hard for most viewers to get past such a graphic and horrible visual when it’s played.

But this is not the first time this has happened in figure skating competition, in fact it’s not even the first time a German has skated to the music. John Williams’ soundtrack of violin music (played by the Israeli violinist Itzhak Perlman) has actually been popular with skaters since the film’s release in 1994.
