During World War II, millions of Jews from all over Europe are deported and killed in German concentration camps. When the German troops invade Norway, the Norwegian Jews feel safe and protected. But as the war escalates in Europe, the situation changes drastically. One day, all the men over the age of 15 are arrested and taken to prison camps. Many of the women left behind are too frightened to escape and are desperately waiting for their husbands and sons to come back home. On November 26, 1942, hundreds of Jews are picked up by the police and transported to the dock in Oslo. Unknowing and frightened, they are forced on board the awaiting German cargo ship "SS DONAU". The ship leaves Oslo with 532 Norwegian Jews; 302 men, 188 women and 42 children. The end station is Auschwitz.
