    "Skate to survive is a documentary about the artistry and struggle of Canadian figure skating coach and choreographer Ellen Burka. She recounts her life from pre-war Amsterdam, to Westerbork and Theresienstadt concentration camps, to Dutch national champion, to bohemian Toronto in the 1950s and finally world skating celebrity. The film shows how her enthusiasm and energy allowed her wildly creative side to survive and flourish despite the harsh realities around her."--Container.
