Director Statement

Know your own story, because a story told across the generations is a gift. When you know who you are and why, you can navigate the wilderness of time with courage and confidence.
- Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks zt"l

My late parents were married on CBS television's The Bride and Groom Show. They were chosen to appear due to their combined backgrounds of Nazi and Soviet persecution. I have been researching both maternal and paternal family members fates for years. Sadly my parents and maternal grandparents died without ever knowing exactly how their loved ones died. I promised both my grandmother and mother, that I would find out, and I have kept that promise.

After years of silence I am ready to share some of my maternal and paternal family members' stories before, during and after the Holocaust. Their stories and fates are told by narration, photos, documents, historical newspaper headlines and music.

Their stories are similar to many 2nd and 3rd generation children and grandchildren (adults from the the ages of 40's-70's) of now deceased survivors; who are sharing their stories to leave behind.

The experience of all our family members illustrate how fascism, racism, far right extremism, supersessionism, and xenophobia can lead to genocide in a relatively short amount of time.

In Blessed Memory of the Six Million and those who survived to share their stories.
