Echoes of the Holocaust

Series Website »
The Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach stands as a stark reminder and stunning symbol of anguish and tragedy. The memorial - comprised of evocative stone and bronze sculptures, a meditation garden, a reflecting pool, an eternal flame and a granite wall - honors the Holocaust's six million Jewish victims. Its centerpiece, "The Sculpture of Love and Anguish," features a giant outstretched arm tattooed with a number from Auschwitz rising from the earth, depicting the last desperate reach of a dying person. Today, some Holocaust survivors serve as docents (guides) for the memorial, sharing their stories of survival to schoolchildren, tourists and visitors from across the globe. ECHOES OF THE HOLOCAUST captures four of these intimate tours. Docents Joe Dziubak, David Schaecter, Ann Rosenheck and Morris Rosenblat relive their personal tragedies - of loved ones lost and their own private terror, pain and humiliations - and recount the occasional miracle and their eventual liberation.
