Handicapped Jews had no chance of surviving the Nazi horrors. The survival of Anna van Dam, a 17 year old Dutch-Belgian girl in Auschwitz is a unique story. Anna's Silent Struggle is the first film documenting the dramatic story of this forgotten group. For the hearing, Auschwitz is characterized as a place of horrible sounds, for the deaf, the terror was silent. Young deaf filmmaker Tom is in search of getting an answer to the question of what happened to deaf Jews during the war, and how some could survive the horrors of the Nazi persecution, despite the seemingly insurmountable burden of her handicap. Tom chances upon the story of Anna, one of the very few deaf persons who survived the Nazi death camp Auschwitz.
