An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps; only 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. These scars reveal them to be diverse, enlightening, and full of life. The Jerusalem Post: “Numbered reminds us how much people count…my favorite documentary from this summer’s Jerusalem Film Festival.

Following the film, Dr. Zev Harel, a survivor of the Auschwitz, Mauthausen and Ebansee concentration camps will share his inspiring story with the audience.  Dr. Harel’s appearance is being sponsored by the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library.
