Our group of movie-loving neighborhood women found this to be a powerful story. The women who swam together as teenagers remained fit, vigorous and mentally alert through their 80s, a lesson for everyone. Their narratives of how the Austrians treated them after Germany annexed the country were chilling. To judge by the encounter with the taxi driver, those Anti-Semitic views are still prevalent, which is alarming. An uplifting story of the community knit together by love of sport, which helped them survive.
