A Boy's Life

Christian Krönes
Florian Weigensamer

As one of the famous “131 boys from Kaunas” Daniel Chanoch is deported to Auschwitz. Working at the ramp he becomes Dr. Mengele´s role model at occasional inspections by the Red Cross. After a “Death March”, lasting months, the kids arrive at the Upper Austrian satellite camp Gunskirchen. There true hell is revealed: poisoning, plagues, hunger and cannibalism. After liberation, just 12 years old, Daniel reunites with his brother. As the sole survivors of the family they set off for Palestine.
