"Daniella Preleshnik, a fourteen-year-old Jewish girl, left her home in Poland one day in 1939 to take a school trip with her classmates and never returned. Based on an authentic diary, House of Dolls is the story of one of the millions whose lives were crushed by Hitler's storm troopers - a story of life in the ghetto in labour camps and, finally, in the "House of Dolls", one of the houses of prostitution set up by the Nazis for their armed forces. Girls were carefully selected for these establishments, and Daniella was one of them. She endured the brutality of Schulze, the shop overseer; of the German doctor who performed experiments on the girls with such precision that they never escaped pain by fainting; and of Elsa, the blonde torturess in charge of the "House of Dolls"."
