The Heart of Auschwitz

At once a historical tale, a detective mystery and an uplifting saga, The Heart of Auschwitz examines the crown jewel of Montreal’s Holocaust Museum. While a prisoner at Auschwitz, Fania Feiner turned 20 and received a small heart-shaped book containing birthday greetings—as well as expressions of the thoughts, hopes and prayers—from 12 fellow women prisoners. Fania survived and now lives in Toronto. She managed to hold onto the book, the only physical object from her painful past. After Fania donated it to the Montreal Holocaust Museum, filmmaker Carl Leblanc decided to trace its history, and travelled the world in search of survivors among the 12 who signed the book. An inspiring film treasure.
