Shoan memoirs transform young Christian man in the Jew of then Nazi-occupied Europe with dare personal consequences in modern California, US.
21 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Time and tide wait no man.

Lesser and lesser number of witnessing the history-in-making are around since the WWII ended.

Remembering the past helps making fewer mistakes in the future-theoretically.

Holocaust, Jewish shoan is a lesson for all humankind.

Denying existence of this tragedy is a crime in civilized world.

Denying existence of this tragedy is a practice in terror-infested parts of the world.

New times bring new approaches to keeping memory of this crime against humanity alive.

Modern audio-video techniques are a tool to memorize materialized horror of survivors.

A mother-loving home-boy young Christian man involved in activities of a local Holocaust Society to make a video archive of memories shared by aged Holocaust victims.

A pressure of the heard transformed him in the Jew of then Nazi-occupied Europe with dare personal consequences in modern California, US.

Understanding the best of movie makers' intentions hardly avoids ambiguity of their de facto conclusions such psycho-pressure hyperbolised has lead factually to.
