Call (Into The Wild). Auschwitz Escape – The Klara Wizel Story is a one-hour documentary presented in a Ken Burns style format that explores Klara, a sixteen year old Hungarian Jew and her will to survive the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele.
The film’s director Danny Naten said, “the story needed to be told so we took a risk, put the blinders on and stopped production in the middle of another project to make sure it got done and thank God we did. That’s how important Auschwitz Escape – The Klara Wizel Story is. The whole world needs to see the movie…it’s that inspirational.”
