“The Lost Brothers” is a documentary film by Haim Etgar in Hebrew with English subtitles. It’s a touching story about two brothers who found each other 72 years after World War II. The film will include a foreword by Olga Goler, Arie Perelman’s wife, an exhibition of paintings by Arie Perelman and a reception.
This story cannot fail to touch you. It is about how the war ended 75 years ago, but people are still being carried away to this day and their fates are being determined by its merciless hand. According to the author, it touches each of us who live in the fast-paced 21st century.
On April 24, 2018, a phone call rang in Arie’s home. “We are calling you from Warsaw, from the Museum of the History of Polish Jews,” he heard on the other end of the phone receiver. “We want to inform you, Arie, that you were found by your brother, and you were adopted in 1947 in Wroclaw.”
What he didn’t realize was his brother, Adam, had been searching for him for 72 years since the war.
The film was released in Israel in May 2019.
We bring it to you in Boston on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. May the memory of all the victims of this terrible machine of war, which does not spare people even in our days, be bright!+ More... - Less...
