Jamner tells the story of how his mother and her family were discovered in hiding and sent to Auschwitz. He examines a concentration camp mural that in one corner shows a pile of suitcases that were taken away by the Nazis, and he describes the meaning of that image to his mother’s story. He tells the extraordinary story of how his mother and grandmother escaped the gas chamber, addressing the myth that Jews walked willingly to their deaths. He discusses a quote on the mural from Victor Frankl about what is left when everything else is taken away.
