The Story of the Heart
On December 12, 1944, Fania Fainer turned 20 years old while a prisoner in Auschwitz. She received this heart-shaped notebook as a gift from a group of brave women, who filled it with messages of hope. The film traces the history of this heart while looking for possible survivors among the signatories.
A Testament to Solidarity
Fania Fainer now lives in Toronto. She donated the Heart of Auschwitz to the Montreal Holocaust Museum in 1988. This object is a testament to the solidarity between these women and a powerful symbol of moral resistance during the Holocaust. The Heart is currently on display in the Museum’s permanent exhibit.Learn more about the Heart
