Description: One of the glaring omissions in the ongoing study of events of the Holocaust is the experience of women in the concentration camps. While subject to the same physical conditions as the men, and many of the same physical hardships, the ways in which women convey their memories is a stark contrast to most male testimonies. A strong focus on family and friendship, on faith and spirituality of all kinds become focal points. It is this experience that "Swimming in Auschwitz" captures.
