Broken Silence

From Steven Spielberg and Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation come five documentaries from acclaimed international filmmakers dealing with human courage, heroism, and triumph over extreme adversity during World War II. 'Some Who Lived': Argentine filmmaker Luis Puenzo ('The Official Story') weaves together testimonies from Holocaust survivors now living in Argentina and Uruguay with archival and modern-day footage, exploring the connections between Nazism and the darker chapters in Argentine history. "Eyes of the Holocaust": Director Janos Szasz, the son of Holocaust survivors, focuses on the experiences of children during the Holocaust. 'Children from the Abyss': Holocaust survivors detail their experiences of resistance, betrayal, rescue and the desire for revenge. Directed by Pavel Chukhraj ('The Thief'). 'I Remember': Academy Award Honouree Andrzej Wajda ('Ashes and Diamonds') looks at four survivors who were either helped or betrayed by their Polish neighbours. 'Hell on Earth': Renowned Czech filmmaker Vojtech Jasny takes a look at Theresienstadt, the 'model' Czech ghetto set up by the Nazis to deceive the world about how well the Jews were treated.
