Numbered

Auschwitz prisoners, both Jewish and non-Jewish, were tattooed with serial numbers, first on their chests and then their left arms. An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps; only some several thousand survivors are still alive today. NUMBERED is an explosive, highly visual, and emotionally cinematic journey, guided by testimonies and portraits of these survivors. The film documents the dark time and setting during which these tattoos were assigned as well as the meaning they took on in the years following the war. In fact, the film's protagonist is the number itself, as it evolves and becomes both a personal and collective symbol from 1940 to today. These scars, paradoxically unanimous and anonymous, reveal themselves to be diverse, enlightening, and full of life.

    At the end of the Documentary Numbered there is a female survivor who says to another female survivor,”I tried contacting family in Argentina but was not able to find anyone;there is no family left”. I would love for someone to tell that lady….We humanity good hearted individuals who care ARE HER FAMILY!. If anyone who watched this film did not shed a tear when she said those words they must be made of stone. Thank you for this film!!
