Still image from Surviving Birkenau: The Dr. Susan Spatz Story

Born in Vienna in 1922, Susan Spatz was an only child who lived a life of privilege until the Nazis invaded Austria. Deported to Theresienstadt and ultimately interned at the notorious Birkenau death camp, she survived an astonishing three years before a long and brutal death march led her instead to liberation. In this documentary, Susan recounts her experiences with remarkable clarity. With the assistance of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, acclaimed filmmaker Ron Small brings Dr. Spatz’s story to the forefront for generations to witness. Please note this title contains potentially offensive language, images from concentration camps, and mature themes.
