Sabotage is a hybrid documentary that tells the untold story of the Jewish Women's Underground.
January 1945, less than two weeks before the evacuation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, four forced laborers women, Estusia Wajcblum, Rosa Robota, Alla Gartner, and Regina Safirstein were hanged in public, accused of sabotaging the Nazi war machine.
Sabotage tells the dramatic and unknown story of the women's underground operation in Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is a story of feminine heroism, resistance, hope and tragedy, told through the eyes of Anna Wajcblum Heilman, Estusia’s sister and the youngest member of the women’s resistance.
Under the horrific inferno of Auschwitz, Anna writes a diary describing the dramatic story of the women’s resistance, and the day-to-day routine of the camp, which consists of many little moments of camaraderie and friendship between young women shaped under harsh circumstances.
