Zerach: A Refugee and Remnant in the Holocaust
With the outbreak of the Second World War, young Zionist leader Zerach Wahrhaftig fled Warsaw, making his way to still neutral Lithuania. Fearing for the fate of thousands of Jews who also fled to Lithuania, Zerach mounted a relentless campaign to get Jews out of Europe. With the help of the Dutch consul Jan Zwartendijk and Japanese consul Chiune Sugihara, thousands of Jews set out for the Dutch colony of Curacao, Kobe Japan and on to Palestine, the United States, Surinam and Shanghai. Now in his nineties, Dr. Wahrhaftig returns to Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Belarus, China and Japan to recount his memories and to revisit the people and places that touched his life during those nightmarish years.

They Risked Their Lives: Rescuers of the Holocaust 
To date, more than 8,500 rescuers, none of whom are Jewish, have been honored for having saved Jewish lives during the Holocaust.  Thousands more remain unknown. From 1986-1988, Gay Block and Malka Drucker interviewed and photographed over 100 Holocaust rescuers, from twelve different countries; their photographic exhibit has traveled to museums across the U.S.A.  In Ms. Block's video, we meet the passionate and heroic "Righteous Gentiles," who risked their lives- as well as the lives of their families, to save Jews. The "ordinary response" of these selfless and unassuming men and women made a difference.

"The stories are told with authenticity and emotion. Viewers will be impressed with the large number and wide array of rescuers interviewed."-Video Rating Guide

A Debt to Honor: Italy
Narrated by Alan Alda, this documentary chronicles the assistance of ordinary Italians who became extraordinary, through their individual acts of courage. Through a series of interviews with Italian priests, nuns, housewives, lawyers and many others, we learn of their direct involvement in the rescue and safety they extended to Italian and refugee Jewish fugitives, thus saving them from the Holocaust. Close to 80% of all the Jews living in Italy at the outbreak of the War survived through the help they received from their Christian neighbors. Archival scenes of Mussolini’s rise power serve as a background for understanding the role of Italian fascism as the basis for official anti-Semitic policies at the time.

Zegota: Council for Aid to Jews in Occupied Poland (1942-1945)

The London-based Polish Government-in-Exile, financed and encouraged cooperation between the Polish Underground and their civilian counterparts who together had formed the clandestine Council for Aid to Jews. This organization, code-named "Zegota" provided hiding places and false identity documents for Jews who were able to escape from Nazi control. Through interviews with Zegota participants, Jewish survivors and Polish and Jewish historians, this documentary, narrated by Eli Wallach, recalls the extraordinary courage of people who risked - and some of whom sacrificed - their lives trying to save Jewish refugees.

It was Nothing ...It was Everything: Greece

Reflections on the rescue of Jewish fugitives in Greece during the Holocaust.

Almost 65,000 Greek Jews were murdered during the Holocaust, nearly 90% of the Jewish Community. Approximately 10,000 Greek Jews did however survive, most of whom were helped by other Greek citizens who risked their own lives in order to save them. Narrated by Irene Papas, this unique documentary utilizes archival footage as well as interviews with farmers and housewives, church leaders and professionals, to acquaint us with some lesser known acts of moral courage that took place in Greece during the Holocaust.

Rescue in Scandinavia
