More than 80 hours of witness interviews, conducted by Lawrence L. Langer, one of the world’s foremost authorities on Holocaust testimonies, were locked in a metal closet for decades and have never been seen by the general public. The nearly 30-year-old testimonies have been finally thrust into the spotlight in the documentary film “Soul Witness: The Brookline Holocaust Witness Project.” The film sold out several screenings in the New England/New York area following the release of the “Soul Witness” trailer.
A special screening of “Soul Witness” will be shown at Coolidge Corner Theatre on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Tiziana Dearing, host of WBUR’s Radio Boston, will moderate a panel discussion featuring:
- Janet Bloom, second-generation Holocaust survivor (her mother, Rose Murra, is featured in the film)
- Cheryl Lefman, second-generation Holocaust survivor (her father, Henry Lefman, is featured in the film)
- Robert Trestan, executive director of ADL New England
- R. Harvey Bravman, director/producer of “Soul Witness”
The documentary features a collection of interviews of Holocaust survivors, conducted in the early 1990s. Witnesses describe their lives before the war, growing intolerance, their lives during the war and the affect their experiences still had on them at the time of the interviews. Some witnesses survived death camps, some hid, others fought in resistance movements and many saved the lives of others.
The film is intended for a general audience with an advisory for children under 13.
