Very powerful testimony from a strong survivor


However I really wish they chose more mature girls to interview, or had just forgotten about trying to include these 2 students who have nothing to do with the story except for their age being the same as Kitty during her time at Auschwitz. Kitty was years beyond these two in terms of maturity at this same age considering the chaos she endured, so making the comparison to these two really is pointless. I personally got a lot more out of hearing the testimony of Kitty's own grandaughter and her feelings of how her own flesh and blood endured this awful experience, and wish they dedicated more time to that. I understand they are trying to bridge the gap between a young girl in a death camp back then, to a young girl of today, but the girls they chose were so immature with a constant look of disconnect on their faces that they seem completely on another wavelength from Kitty the whole time.

I agree. I can see where since she gives tours there was the idea of choosing girls of that age to accompany her. It just didn't work out with the documentary.

Here's a similar documentary Kitty did back in the 70's you might like better: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyW2rRM-1a8.

i DiSagree. i think it shows how teens are developmentally insensitive, and this insensitivity of that age is what helped kitty survive

I wonder if it was to juxtapose their lives at the same ages? Kitty had to be more mature at 17, she was in a horrible situation these girls live in free countries where (let's hope) they'll never have to fear this type of thing happening to them.

I do agree though, they did look disinterested most of the time, very sad. A lot of 'uh huh' 'yea' and 'oh' going on. They should have picked 2 girls who were actually interested in Kitty's plight.

You can call me 'Mayor Chapstick.'

I felt the opposite. To me they seemed like they were trying to process the information Kitty shared with them. It's one thing to just hear it, but it's another to let it fully soak in and it might've hit them after the day was over.
