Touched By Auschwitz

About the Show

The extraordinary story of six Auschwitz survivors, telling of their survival in the years after they left the camp, and travelling right up to the present day. Producer and director Laurence Rees has travelled extensively in order to film six survivors of Auschwitz, along with their friends and families. Together these sequences, filmed in Jerusalem and Chicago, London and Bavaria, Krakow and Tel Aviv, build into a compelling portrait of the problems, challenges and triumphs that six different individuals have experienced since the war as a result of their time in Auschwitz. These interviews attempt to answer one of the most profound questions of the Holocaust – what is the human legacy of the crime?
