On 20 January 1945, approximately 1000 female Jewish prisoners were forced on a death march from Schlesiersee (today Sława) camp in Upper Silesia, Poland. On the way, the prisoners passed through other camps, and more women were added to the march.
106 days later, on 5 May 1945, after covering a distance of over 800 km (500 miles), the march ended in the town of Volary in Czechoslovakia.
Out of the 1300 women who marched to Volary around 350 survived.
