Storyline

Auschwitz prisoners, both Jewish and non-Jewish, were tattooed with serial numbers, first on their chests and then their left arms. An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps; only some several thousand survivors are still alive today. NUMBERED is an explosive, highly visual, and emotionally cinematic journey, guided by testimonies and portraits of these survivors. The film documents the dark time and setting during which these tattoos were assigned as well as the meaning they took on in the years following the war. In fact, the film's protagonist is the number itself, as it evolves and becomes both a personal and collective symbol from 1940 to today. These scars, paradoxically unanimous and anonymous, reveal themselves to be diverse, enlightening, and full of life. Written by Neta Zwebner-Zaibert

Young guy: "After all you've been through.. I don't get how you have such joy in life."

Holocaust survivor, Daniel Chanock: "Listen, life is a one-time gift. Don't let it go to waste!"

There are many moving stories in this short documentary. It's a unique take on the Holocaust story. What do these tattoos mean to the survivors? Some of them wear them with pride, others get relatives' numbers tattooed, some hide them in shame. Regardless of how they view their tattoos, they're all remarkable people who have endured tremendous adversity.

Powerful scenes of when they all raise their tattooed arms in the air together. I also loved the man who gave his grandson a heartfelt hug: "This is my victory!"

Only downsides, were that I thought the documentary makers tried to be a bit too "artsy" at times, or create certain atmosphere, when really, the people and their stories were more than enough to do so.
