Multiply by six million portraits and stories of Holocaust survivors / a film by Evvy Eisen, Kelly Hendricks, and Doug Neecke

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-0675

The film unites three powerful elements. Central are classic black and white portraits of survivors, created by photographer and filmmaker Evvy Eisen. Survivors' stories are told in sections: Destruction and Loss, Lives Rebuilt and Reflections. Their emotion filled voices recount memories of the separation from family, the horror of the cattle car journey, the selection where it was decided if they were fit to work or condemned to die. A haunting solo piano score composed and performed by Nicole Milner, a survivor, unites the visual and spoken threads. This blending of original narrative, photographs, and music portray memorable images of human courage, stamina and creativity born of the most desperate circumstances.
