They endured the death camps. They hid in remote farms. They fought as partisans in Polish forests. But when the war ended, the struggles of the Holocaust survivors were only just beginning. Destination Unknown paints a uniquely intimate portrait of survival, revealing pain that has never faded but hasn't crushed the human spirit.

They Survived, But Could They Be Free?


Did You Know?


Director Claire Ferguson on Destination Unknown (2017): "I wanted to make a film where the only voices are those of the survivors themselves, to capture something of the intimacy and immediacy I felt when talking with some of them directly. The challenge was to weave those individual voices together in a way that created a wider story, one that explored not only the pain of the Holocaust itself, but the building of new lives afterwards. My overriding question was 'How can you make a life after such pain?" [2017] See more »

User Reviews

Brilliant, Emotional Film
11 February 2018 | by helpmecomputerguySee all my reviews

This film is not a history lesson. It is instead the tales of a group of inspiring survivors who discuss what they went through and how they learned to leave meaningful, special lives. Each person is miraculous and shows the boundless strength survivors are known for. True legacies of valiant courage, hope and strength.
