“…a potent essay on a tragedy so enormous it can only be grasped by the details.” – Missoula Independent
My grandparents survived the Holocaust but they never talked about it. Years after both of their deaths, I discovered a memoir my grandmother had written towards the end of her life, and I finally learned their story. YIZKOR uses my grandmother’s own words, along with animation, archival material, and present-day Super 8 footage, to tell that story – one of survival and resilience in the face of crushing loss.
YIZKOR is distributed by the National Center for Jewish Film. Watch a clip from the film.
