Storyline

One Day in Auschwitz is an hour-long documentary produced by USC Shoah Foundation. The film follows Holocaust survivor Kitty Hart-Moxon as she returns to Auschwitz-Birkenau with two high school students, Natalia Smith and Lydia Hollingsworth, to tell them her story. The girls are the same age Kitty was - 15 - when she was imprisoned in Auschwitz with her mother. When the Nazis invaded Poland, Kitty's family was quickly split up. Her older brother joined the Russian army and was killed in the Battle of Stalingrad. A priest who was a friend of her mother's got false papers for Kitty and her mother to get them out of Poland and into Germany, but someone suspected them of being Jews and gave them up to the police. The two were shipped to Auschwitz. In the film, Kitty explains the various ways she and her mother were able to survive. Kitty got herself a job manning the latrines - foul work, but it kept her from being selected for death. Later, she worked in "Canada": the warehouse where a ... Written by USC Shoah Foundation

Survivor witness of horrors at Auschwitz
15 July 2015 | by lcmullerSee all my reviews

Ms. Kitty Hart-Moxon gives two teenage girls a walking tour through what now remains of Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp. Ms. Hart-Moxon, a teenager at the time of her imprisonment, shares her personal and horrifying experiences of survival at the death camp- who was the same age as the teenage girls (16/17) .

Ms. Hart-Moxon's narration is supplemented with historic background information, pictures and films of Auschwitz, which may be disturbing to young or sensitive audiences. As you listen to Ms. Hart-Moxon's survivor story; of terror, torture and worst, you learn about the historic operation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp and her actions and attitudes to survive. It is a phenomenal story of survival that Ms. Hart-Moxon personally witnessed and shares with the next generation and the world. "It happened once, it could happen again"
