The Barn (Trailer)

Watch a trailer to The Barn, a documentary movie which we have consulted and which features Tomasz as a guide for Karl Schapiro and his granddaughter to the forgotten barn in Eastern Galicia where Karl’s life was saved during the Holocaust.

The Barn is currently in production phase. It’s directed by Phil Berger, produced by Rachel Kastner, and co-produced by Matthew Hiltzik and Nancy Spielberg.

Until May 16th, 2015, you can support production of The Barn on Indiegogo.

Recently Jewish Family Search received very positive testimony from Rachel Kastner, Karl’s grand daughter.

From the press release:
“Eighteen year old Rachel Kastner recently traveled to Germany, Poland and Israel on the Heritage Tour, where she walked the same paths at Treblinka, Majdanek and Auschwitz that led millions of Jews to their deaths. She stood stunned at the mass graves where 2,400 Jews were murdered in the forest just outside the shtetl of Tykochin.

But it was one afternoon in Krakow that changed her life forever.

It was there that she met Paulina Plostkaj, a 90-year old Christian Polish woman who is also one of Yad Vashem’s Righteous Gentiles. During the war, Paulina miraculously hid and saved EIGHTEEN Jews. But what she did not know prior to this trip was that one of these Jews who Paulina saved, was… her grandfather, Karl Schapiro”.
