Audio Tracks

portraits - anonymous women - selected by Mengele - is the story fake? - images of concentration camp prisoners - newly stage photographs an imperative diary - identity (face) in a hell on earth - a prisoner turned into an object of abuse - journal of Jewish doctor Miklós Nyiszli, assistant to Mengele - shedding light on life in concentration camps; horrors, suffering, loss

Photographic and filmic portraits of women with engaged and disengaged expressions, forced smiles, nodding, evasive; the film's description gives a source for the photographs, but their authenticity is uncertain.
