Plot Summary
This documentary follows the stories of six female Holocaust survivors, each a former prisoner at Auschwitz-Birkenau. The women, from various countries, arrived at the camp with different backgrounds -- one was the daughter of labor activists, another was studying to be nurse and another was the child of a Prague industrialist. As the film splices current interviews with archival footage, each woman explains how she was able to remain hopeful and to survive in the face of unimaginable horror.
