She saw theitruth with her own eyes.
Sixteen year old Hanna Stern was a typical American teenager who ignored her family's heritage until a mystical Passover seder takes her back in time to German-occupied Poland on an emotional journey of life, death and survival. Transported to a dank, cold, concentration camp, she experiences the horrors of the holocaust and for the first time understands the grim reality of her people's fate. Fighting for survival, she keeps everyone's spirits up by entertaining them with stories of the future, but she soon must face a terrible sacrifice. Starring Kirsten Dunst (Spiderman), Mimi Rogers (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery) and Brittany Murphy (Don't Say a Word) with a powerful introduction by Academy Award® Winner Dustin Hoffman, this emotional journey based on the popular book is a compelling way to show young and old alike why we must "never forget."
