999: The Forgotten Girls of the Holocaust
999 unmarried, young Jewish women were registered for government service in a supposed shoe factory and ended up in Auschwitz. Their government had paid the Nazis to take them and work them to death. Who were these young women? Why were they chosen? How did a handful survive over three years in the death camps?
