As the Red Army approached East Prussia near Koenigsberg (Kaliningrad), the SS drove survivors of concentration and labor camps in a death march to the amber coast. Nearly 7,000, mostly young women, were murdered on the ice near Palmnicken. Maria Blitz was one of the few survivors of the massacre. Her memories are interwoven with reports of other eyewitnesses and visuals of the coast near Kaliningrad to tell the story of the tragedy of Palmnicken.
