The Azrieli Series Short Films are intimate, personal profiles of the five most recently published authors of the Azrieli Series of Holocaust Survivor Memoirs. In the films, the authors reflect on their histories from childhood through to their experiences during the war to their present lives in Canada. Each profile is introduced with a reading by the author from his/her memoir intercut with professional animation that reflects the tone of the author’s excerpt. Each short film gives the viewer a small taste of one author’s character and unique story.
The Azrieli Series Short Films, available subtitled in French, are invaluable re- sources for events and classrooms. Keeping history current for new generations, they capture the author’s voice in perpetuity, allowing generations of readers to “meet” the authors and hear the individual voices of those who demonstrated the courage, strength, wit and luck that it took to prevail in such terrible adversity.
