As time runs out, young filmmakers seek survivors
At this year’s Jerusalem Film Festival, several such young filmmakers presented documentaries on the Holocaust which managed to look at the subject with original eyes.
The time left to hear from those who lived through the Holocaust is clearly running out. Even those who were children then are today approaching their seventies. It is the weighty recognition of this fact that seems to be driving a new generation of filmmakers to seek out those remaining survivors and record their testimonies.
