ONE SURVIVOR REMEMBERS (Running Time 39 minutes)
Gerda Weissmann Klein was a young Jewish girl when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Her family was forced to live in the basement of her home before they were separated from one another. One by one, 15-year-old Jewish girl Gerda Weissmann lost her brother, father, mother and best friends to the Holocaust. She was liberated from her "six-year nightmare" by an American solider whom she later married.
The Oscar-winning film was produced in cooperation with HBO and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. In 2012, the film was selected for inclusion in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, a registry reserved for films that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
