Voices of the Children
This Emmy-winning film tells the story of three people who were imprisoned as children in Terezin, the small Czech town that the Nazis converted into a concentration camp. It was the notorious “showplace” camp used for propaganda purposes by the Nazis. Making excellent use of the survivors’ diaries and drawings hidden during the war, along with archival footage and photos, the film follows their stories through the difficult postwar years into the present with their adult children. The film integrates the survivors’ remembrances with an examination of how the past influenced their lives and the lives of their children. While one son admits he could not bring himself to read his mother’s diary, another daughter confronts her father for the first time saying, “You cannot pretend it did not affect us.” Home video sales only!

Theresienstadt: Gateway to Auschwitz
More than 140,000 Jews were interned in the camp at  Theresienstadt.  Of the 15,000 who were under age 15 at the time, less than 100 survived.  Theresienstadt was the "model" ghetto-as a result-art, music, drama, ballet and sports were all part of the inmates' daily routine.  These varied cultural activities, in spite of the daily exposure to death, enabled the children to cling to the hope of a brighter future. Through interviews with some of these child survivors, we gain meaningful insight into their most unusual childhood.

"This program is recommended...It is clear but not oversimplified, and it will generate discussion and 
appropriately complicate thinking about this segment of history."-Video Rating Guide

Transnistria: The Hell  
The tragic fate of the 300,000 Romanian Jews exiled to Transnistria is revealed to us through the eyewitness accounts of a handful of survivors. Transnistria was located on a plain between the Dniester and Buc rivers. Unlike the industrialized camp at Auschwitz, the Jews of Transnistria were murdered using "old-fashioned" methods-starvation, disease, executions, sub-human living conditions and the like. Renowned Israeli novelist Aharon Applefeld, himself a child survivor of Transnistria, sensitively shares his memories with us along with others who feared that their memories of the camp were so horrible that no one would ever believe their stories."

Auschwitz: The Final Witness 
In April of 1944, Morris, his younger brother Shlomo and their cousin Dario were transported from Salonica, Greece to the death camps at Auschwitz/Birkenau. Although all of their family perished, the three men miraculously survived the unsurvivable- as Sondercommandos, the Jewish prisoners whose job it was to clear out the gas chambers, and to burn the bodies in the ovens of the crematoria. Now, reunited in Auschwitz for the first time in fifty-five years, the men reveal the truth about the Herman killing machine. Out of a total of 1200 sondercommandos, less than 90% survived the war, since the Nazis usually exterminated them in order to eliminate any first-hand eyewitness accounts of the murder of millions of Jews. The testimonies recorded in this powerful documentary are invaluable to us, as these men are truly the "final witnesses."

The Janovska Camp at Lvov 
From 1941 to 1944, 200,000 Jews, comprising one third of the Jewish population of Galicia, were taken to the Nazi labor camp, Janovska, just outside of Lvov.  Only 300 survived.  Recently, a few of the survivors returned to the scene of the horrors of the past.  Among those whose first hand testimonies appear in the video, are the famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal. Stories of personal courage, of miraculous survival and of heart-rending human suffering, abound.

Tsvi Nussbaum: A Boy from Warsaw   
Many of us are familiar with the photograph of this little boy, his arms raised in surrender, as a Nazi soldier trains his machine gun on him.  The photo has come to symbolize the suffering of the entire Jewish people during the Holocaust.  Who was this little boy?  Did he survive the War? This video, about the life of Dr. Tsvi C. Nussbaum, answers these and other questions.

The Death March of the Jews from the Camp at Flossenburg 
Flossenburg, the "forgotten camp" was the third largest Nazi Concentration Camp in Germany. From 1938-1945, more than 100,000 inmates from all over Europe were imprisoned in the main camp and its more than 100 subcamps. As the U.S. Army closed in on the camp in April of 1945, the Nazis marched more than 16,000 Jews on "Death Marches" under the harshest of conditions; thousands perished.  Utilizing archival footage, the illustrations and diaries of the survivors, and interviews with many who participated in the 50th anniversary commemoration of the camp's liberation, we are given a first hand glimpse at the horror that was Flossenburg.
