Watermarks is a 2004 documentary co-written and directed by Yaron Zilberman, in his directorial debut, that features women from the Viennese Hakoah swim team during the rise of fascism in 1930's Austria. The film describes the women's success as athletes leading up to the Anschluss of 1938 when the swimmers fled Austria to disparate locations in Palestine, England, and the United States. The documentary ends with some of the women from the swim team returning to Vienna sixty-five years later for a reunion at their old swimming pool.
