Summary"Yosef Neuhaus was born in Lodz, Poland, the eldest son to an established and educated family. In May 1940 Yosef, his parents, and younger sister Sofia were deported to the Lodz ghetto. Four years later, the last Jews remaining in Lodz were sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp, including Yosef's entire family. From Auschwitz, he was transferred to the Braunsweig concentration camp, and was incarcerated in other camps. By war's end, he was left completely alone. In 1946 Yosef immigrated to pre-state Israel and took part in Israel's War of Independence. In Israel, he met Yanina (nee Goldberg). The two married in 1950 and today have two sons, grandchildren and a great-grandchild. Yosef served for many years as an officer in the Israeli military medical school and later continued to work in the civilian health sector. This [film] documents the major turning points in Yosef's life, and his insistence in repeatedly choosing life. This film is part of the 'Witnesses and Education' series, a joint production of the International School for Holocaust Studies and the Multimedia Center of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In this series, survivors recount their life stores—before, during and after the Holocaust. Each title is filmed on location, where the events originally transpired." —Container
