Storyline

This film follows Hungarian author and Auschwitz survivor Piroska (Academy Award Winner Olympia Dukakis) as she recites a story from her harrowing past: in the summer of 1944, the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp saw a massive increase in Hungarian prisoners. The Nazis enlisted 446 Greek-Jewish prisoners to the horrific task of leading the prisoners into gas chambers. If the Greek-Jewish prisoners refused, they would be killed. It was nightfall when the men were informed of the impossible task they were expected to fulfill the next day. After a long debate about the Nazis' demand, about the morality of it all, and about the meaning of life and death, the prisoners voted on whether they would fulfill the task or willfully be killed. Piroska reveals that she was one of the few Hungarian prisoners to survive and she witnessed the 446 men make their stunning choice. Written by Ideamaker Films
