This staggering film presents the previously untold story of 999 forgotten women of the Holocaust. In March 1942, nearly one thousand young Jewish women were deported in what was the first official Jewish transport to Auschwitz. Rather than focusing on the suffering and death experienced by most of the girls, Macadam tells the stories of a small group who survived against all odds, under unimaginable conditions that lasted more than three grueling years. This film of deep research and vivid detail ensures that these women will no longer be a historical footnote.

This film is in the competition for the Audience Best Documentary Film of the Fest Award.
