Swimming in Auschwitz

About the Show

A gripping documentary that sheds light on the Holocaust experience from the rarely explored perspective of six women imprisoned inside the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. This film demonstrates the Nazis' failure to crush the will of Jews. The women profiled do not dwell on the physical and emotional hardships. Instead, they speak of camp families and faith, and the ways in which they tried to encourage one another and retain their humanity. Their stories reveal the power of laughter and community, even in the face of unimaginable evil.
