We hear from Jane Korman, who traveled to Auschwitz in 2009 with her three children and her 89-year-old father who is a holocaust survivor. Jane made a video of herself, her father and her children, dancing to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" in front of the ovens and cattle cars of Auschwitz and the gates of Terezin prison.
