I'm going to start a series of video posts of World War II survivors. I watched Shoah this past year. I had to sit down and formulate my own movie regarding unspeakable tragedies. I grew up around survivors from WW II's Pacific theatre.
So as a nod to Claude Lanzmann's very important work, I made my home movie to give to my interviewees and their children.
Shoah is available for rent on Netflix, if you are looking for it.
StoryCorps.net was great help. I have to thank the people from Thislife.org especially Elizabeth Meister for answering my e-mail and turning me on to Storycorps' wonderful site.
