Theatrical Release Information
Survivors of the Holocaust become fewer in number every year. Soon there will not be any witnesses left. That is why I decided to record the extraordinary story of Judith, so future generations may learn where hate and prejudice may lead. As a young woman Judith survived Auschwitz-Birkenau, forced labor camps in Germany and the death march to Bergen Belsen, suffering hunger, backbreaking work and the constant fear of death. But rather than letting this experience turn her towards hate, she chose to educate young people about this darkest period in man's history. Judith speaks to thousands of students and teachers every year to encourage young people to stand for justice. For her extraordinary efforts to educate the young about humanity's darkest chapter, Judith received a Doctor of Human Letters from Fordham University in 2016.
As a young woman Judith, as many Jews during the Holocaust, was marked for death just because she was a Jew. First she and her family were forced from their home and had to live in a crowded ghetto. Soon after she and her family were transported by cattle cars to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Her entire family except for her and her adult niece were murdered the first day. After a few weeks the two of them were transported to a work camp in Gelsenkirchen, Germany and later to Essen. As the Allies were approaching the women were forced to go on a death march to Bergen Belsen. They were finally liberated by the British on April 15, 1945.
Fortunately, Judith survived the entire genocidal machinery and is determined to teach future generations about the evils of prejudice and hate. Every year she speaks to thousands of students as well as adults to educate them about the Holocaust. For her enormous contribution to education about the darkest period of the 20th century Judith received a Doctor of Humane Letters from Fordham University in May of 2016.
