I will survive – dancing Auschwitz

In class today Olivia talked about a recent Youtube video when we were talking about Night. In the video Jane Korman, who is Jewish, filmed three generations of her family performing dance routines to the 70s disco track ‘I will survive’ during a trip to the infamous concentration camp in Poland.The Australian claims the video, which has received more than 200,000 hits on YouTube, is a “celebration of life and survival”. Korman’s 89 year old father is an Auschwitz survivor and at one point he stands in a box car and re-enacts his journey to the camp 65 years earlier.The video has both moved and appalled people. Some find it hard to watch and others are applauding his ability to celebrate life and survival with his family. What do you think?

The video has been removed from Youtube.
