A story about people who were able to resist hell
Resistance could be anything, because everything was forbidden. Resistance became any activity that created the impression that the prisoner had something left of his former personality and individuality.
Auschwitz was an immensity of human suffering, humiliation, disintegration of personality and heroic attempts to save one’s identity. A world of an inverted Decalogue. A world of inverted human values. A world without hope, without mercy for others, a world without God.
The commandments of this world were: “kill”, “steal” and “bear false witness”.
It took extraordinary fortitude, character and self-control to be simply human when it came to hunger, working beyond one’s strength, threats and blackmail. Trying to survive in the conditions at Auschwitz without becoming vitriolic was already heroic.
We will tell the story of people who, being just grains of sand thrown into the cogs of the great machine of terror, were able to successfully oppose good to evil and by this means save love, faith and hope where others lost even their humanity.
