Cursed Years in Transnistria Film

Jews from former USSR who survived through Holocaust and emigrated to North America share a tragic episode in the history of Europe. 

The film project "Cursed Years in Transnistria"  identified 15 Jews survivors from former USSR, Eastern Europe, who emigrated to USA and Canada. The film portrays the memories of their past, many of them still have untold stories, memories that are valuable to the whole world, women who were raped and forced to abort their children. 

We hope the testimonies will raise more awareness among those countries where Holocaust is still denied. As a film director, I open a call to the public who cares to support human rights and social justice. Updates about the film progress can be seen here:

We need the money for post-production phase and distribution costs, you will support to have the film screened on film festivals and be accessed on DVDs and other distribution channels.
