Zahor a film by Fabienne Rousse-Lenoir.

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-0983

Zahor (Remember) is a short film dedicated to keeping alive the memory of Jewish individuals and families who were the victims of Nazi persecutions, those who survived and those who did not. It is not a documentary on Nazism or the horrors of the Shoah. Instead, through a series of still photos and film excerpts, Zahor celebrates the life of those who are usually mentioned only as victims, and gives them back their dignity and identities as living, loving, laughing and fighting human beings. Following a loose historical thread, and with a text made almost entirely of excerpts of messages and poems (some written by the very people on the photographs), it tries to grasp the living presence of men, women and children of a people whose entire existence was meant to be erased.
