Producer/Director Jon Kean will discuss his documentary, Swimming in Auschwitz, which provides a female perspective on the Holocaust by telling the story of six diverse Jewish women deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau during World War II. Through the eyes of Kean’s subjects, the viewer becomes a witness to the female experience of the Holocaust – which, though they endure the same physical hardships as men – centers more on camp families, faith and the struggle to remain human.
