Documentary project “Holocaust in USSR”
The first objective for the films of the project – documenting the events and filming the witnesses in the location of the event and at the same time of year that the event took place.
The entire project is comprised of nine films that are supported by the Claims Conference, The Israel Lottery Authority, the Genesis Philanthropy Group and the Joint FSU.
Some of the films also received support from Israel Channel 8 and the Rabinovitch Film Fund.
I ask for support for the two final films of the project:
8th film - about the Holocaust in Ukraine: «On the way to Babyn Yar». The story that hundreds of thousands of Jews were already killed in Ukraine before the Babin Yar. This film for the first time reveals the creation of a system of mass murder of Jews. From the destruction of men and to the mass shootings of thousands of men, women and children during one day of light.
9th film – «THE MYSTERY OF THE BLACK BOOK» - about how and why almost immediately after the end of the Great Patriotic War Stalin practically banned the memorialization of the memory of the Holocaust of Soviet Jews.
