INTO THE HEART OF AUSCHWITZ

This feature documentary is the story of the authors of a book, a book made in the shape of a heart and given on December 12, 1944 to celebrate the 20th birthday of Fania, a prisoner in Auschwitz. The book today is on display at the Holocaust Commemorative Centre of Montreal and it contains the wishes of its 20 authors who made the book at the risk of losing their lives. In the heart of evil, these women committed a crime of humanity. In their attempt to find the authors, the filmmaker tries to bring the womens beautiful gesture back to life.
