THE FILM

999 reveals the hidden story about 999 unmarried, young Jewish women registered for government service in a supposed shoe factory and ended up in Auschwitz. 

Who were these young women? Why were they chosen? How did a handful survive over three years in the death camps?

 

94-year-old Edith Grosman—#1970—and a few other survivors reveal the truth of this almost completely ignored piece of women's history, the First Official Jewish Transport to Auschwitz.   Based on the international best seller 999: The  Extraordinary Young Women of the First Official Jewish Transport to Auschwitz (translated into 19 languages) this documentary pairs with the book to educate and inform a wider public about this historic #MeToo story.

THE GIRLS

EDITH GROSMAN #1970 

Just 17 years old when she was deported to Auschwitz with her sister, Leah. Edith survived 3 years in Auschwitz. Her sister did not.

 

Edith was one of a few living survivors of the first transport and her story serves as the centerpiece to this film and book. Her resilient spirit and courage in facing this history is a testament to young women and old women alike. 

She was married to the Oscar Award winning screenwriter, Ladislav Grosman.

JUDITH MITTELMAN#1800
was 16 when she was deported with Edith. On the transport were girls who had known each other the entire lives, but only a few would survive the three years ahead of them  

Judith is one of four remaining survivors of the first transport. She is 98 years old.
ADELA #UNKNOWN
18-year-old Adela Gross was known for her magnificent red hair, which tumbled down her back like a lion’s mane. When Adela disappeared into the jaws of Auschwitz. Seventy years later, her family discovered what had happened to her thanks to the survivor Rena Kornreich, #1716. Adela’s story was first written in Rena’s Promise and is now a pivotal sequence in our film.
