Film Screening | “999: The Forgotten Girls”

WEB 999

In the spring of 1942, the Nazis ordered the Slovak government to send a slave labor force and received 999 teenage, Jewish girls. Their railway ticket was a one-way trip to Auschwitz.

First-time Director/Producer and author of the international best-selling book, 999, Heather Dune Macadam spent eleven years interviewing survivors of the first transport all over the world. Digging through family and government archives, 999 unearths ground-breaking research that reveals this untold story entirely from a female perspective.

Those who survived endured more than three years in the death camps and beg us to ask the question: Why were girls targeted first?

Join Holocaust Museum Houston for a screening of the newly released documentary 999: The Forgotten Girls. Following the screening will be a Q&A session with Heather Dune Macadam, as well as a presentation of the work behind her research.
