This powerful film examines the complex relationships three Auschwitz survivors have with the numbers tattooed on their arms. The ever-optimistic 84-year-old Gita Kalderon (76914), the realistic 84-year-old Joka Levi (A11998), and the adventurous 79-year-old Dani Hanoch (B2823) each have their own perspective, and plenty to say about people’s ever-changing attitudes toward their inescapable past as it is writ large on their skin. Hanna Rabinovitz, daughter of prisoner number 64650, adds another perspective to the mix as a member of the next generation who tattoos her father's number onto her own body. Additional testimonies from 30 survivors help to make the film a riveting showcase of the clash between past and present, name and number, society and its symbols.

Film preceded by Audition.

Co-director Dana Doron in person at January 20 screening! Discussion moderated by Dr. Annette Insdorf, Professor, Graduate Film Program, Columbia University, author of Indelible Shadows: Film and Holocaust.
