The Holocaust will very soon pass from living memory to history and I needed to record some of those people who witnessed it which is why I started filming without all the money in place. 

One of the people I was going to film in the USA was Eva Mozes Kor who along with her twin sister was experimented on by Josef Mengele and rescued from Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Russians.

She was very unusual among the survivors in that she forgave the Nazis, something I found baffling. Hence the reason I wanted to film her.

Sadly, she is now part of history.

Philip Rubenstein has agreed to be in the film.

Philip was the director of the All-Party Parliamentary War Crimes Group, which campaigned successfully in the 1980s to change the law to enable the prosecution of Nazi war criminals living in the UK. He was the first director of the Holocaust Educational Trust, a former board member of the Britain-Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM), and is currently a trustee of the International Centre for Jewish Studies (ICJS).

We will be filming him in the next few weeks.

The Jewish Telegraph this week ran an article about the film. 

However, we do hope that donations come in from non-Jews because as Dr James Smith says in the film it was a crime against humanity.

Had I lived then in Hitlers Germany, as an independent filmmaker, I would have been on the Nazis list. 

And you?
