Survivors of the Holocaust, directed by Allan Holzman, is a documentary that chronicles the events of the Holocaust as witnessed by those who survived. This marks the 26th anniversary of the film and the world’s first digital archive for Holocaust Testimony, the Shoah Foundation. The film was presented by Steven Spielberg and honored with two Emmy Awards.
Etched in Glass: The Legacy of Steve Ross, directed by Roger Lyons, is the compelling true account of a boy who endured 10 Nazi concentration camps over 5 horrific years. As an adult, Steve Ross helped thousands of at-risk youth in the US and was the founder of the iconic New England Holocaust Memorial which rises above Boston's historic Freedom Trail.
