Fascination: Helena

2021 1h 01m

Holocaust survivor Helena Weinrauch, who grew up in Drohobycz, Poland, lived through the worst that the 20th century. Helena survived three concentration camps: Plaszow, presided over by the notorious Amon Goeth, Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen. She endured the 500 mile death march from Auschwitz to Bergen Belsen – and miraculously, her life was saved at the last second twice as she stood before two firing squads. Helena’s survival has only given her strength, and a reason to rejoice in her life. A few years ago, as a mere girl of 88, she decided it was time to finally pursue a life-long dream: to become a Ballroom Dancer. In this newfound passion, she has found new hope and joy. The film is not a story of war or hate – but rather one of strength hope and resiliency. It tells of Helena’s miraculous survival and also, of her healing – her redemption.
