About the Film

What does it mean to be a third generation descendant of Holocaust survivors? Beginning with a young girl's discovery of the number on her grandfather's arm and ending with an inter-generational family trip back to Birkenau/Auschwitz, the film culminates in an intense recognition of a generation's obligation to retell their grandparents’ stories to the world and to future generations. May we never forget.

Since 2009, the film has screened at the United Nations as part of the annual international Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremonies, the International Family Film Festival (where it was selected as a finalist for the best student documentary award), the Newport Beach Film Festival, the Philadelphia Film Festival, the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival and at the Jewish Federation of Ottawa’s annual Holocaust Education conference. Outside of these screenings, numerous organizations are using the film for their respective Holocaust and tolerance education initiatives. The Anti-Defamation League’s Bearing Witness program uses the film as part of their effort to teach Catholic school educators around the United States how to incorporate the Holocaust into their curricula. Steven Spielberg’s USC Shoah Foundation Institute is using the film to inspire other grandchildren of survivors to create similar multimedia projects, and 3GNY and Facing History and Ourselves, two non-profits in New York, have used the film as part of an effort to get other grandchildren of survivors to teach their grandparents’ stories.
