The Films of the Projects
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.
We are operating under urgent circumstances, as even the youngest of the witnesses is at least 85 years old. The map of our filming encompasses tens of sites in Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Southern Russia and the Northern Caucus.
The entire project is comprised of nine films that are supported by the Claims Conference, The Israel Lottery Authority, the Genesis Foundation and the Joint FSU.
Some of the films also received support from Israel Channel 8, the Rabinovitch Film Fund, the Company for Location and Restitution of Holocaust Victims’ Assets, and private donors.
But we are still missing close to 400,000 NIS for the film about the Shoah in Ukraine – and the final film of the entire series – about the reasons behind Stalin’s decision to ignore, and even hide the topic of the Holocaust in the territories of the Soviet Union.
We are turning to you with a request to join the group of friends of the project and make a donation of 1000 NIS per family. We need this in order to be able to complete all nine films. Please turn to five or six of your friends in the hope that at least some of them might want to assist in the completion of this important project. Of course, donors’ names will be featured on the end credits of the film.
