Samuel Steinmann is the last living survivor of the Norwegian Jews who were deported to Auschwitz in the Fall of 1942. In The Tram To Auschwitz, Sammy makes that journey again, and the film follows him, merging the present with the past, and his account with the latest historical research. This documentary is made with the desire to understand how this could happen in Norways recent past. What small and large steps were taken that made it possible to segregate and deport a young Norwegian boy - and an entire group of people - on grounds of their ethnic origin? How could this happen in a country the Nazis had classified as not having a Jewish Problem, and how did Sammy survive against all the odds? A touching story about the will to survive, courage, luck and one very special man.
