My new film, ‘Touched by Auschwitz’, a ninety minute feature length documentary, will transmit in the United Kingdom on BBC2 on Holocaust Memorial Day, Tuesday 27 January at 9 pm.
It’s my attempt to answer one of the most profound questions of the Holocaust. What was the human legacy of the crime?
It explores the experiences of six Auschwitz survivors – telling of their survival in the years after liberation and moving right up to the present day. I’ve traveled extensively in order to film these remarkable people, along with their friends and families. Together these sequences filmed in Jerusalem and Chicago, London and Bavaria, Krakow and Tel Aviv build into a portrait of the problems, challenges and triumphs that six different individuals have experienced since the war as a result of their time in Auschwitz.
