This is a 2007 58-minute documentary about the female detainees and their experiences in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps.
It reveals the stories of six Jewish women who were imprisoned inside the concentration camps during the Holocaust.
These six women all survived and tell their stories in person in the documentary.
Obviously, the pool in the Auschwitz camp was NOT for enjoyment of the inmates, but to be used for the time of fire.
One of the women, however, tells about her experience, in which she actually took a dip in the water because it was too hot at the time.
It is a shocking and heart-wrenching documentary with a couple of amazingly heart-warming episodes.

Outstanding interviews. A reminder that people can survive horrific experiences. I would have liked to hear a bit about how each woman felt her time in the camps affected the rest of her life.
