It is the account of Kitty Felix Hart, the daughter of Polish Jews, who survived the horrors of Auschwitz for nearly two years, and 34 years later, married and the mother of two grown sons, made a personal pilgrimage to the site of the notorious death camp in order to “figure out what happened and see how it was possible to go on living” at that time.

The film, a production of Yorkshire Television in England was directed by Peter Morley and produced by Morley and Kevin Sim. Executive producer was Micael Deakin. It was the winner of the Royal Television Society’s 1980 Documentary Report Award. Mrs. Hart now works as an X-ray technician in Birmingham, England.
