Jews surviving the Holocaust in Rozhniativ (documentary movie)

We did an extensive research for the US crew working on movie depicting story of a Holocaust survivor coming back after years to the place where he was hidden during the war. In a small Galician town at the feet of the Carpathian Mountains, Rozhniativ (Rożniatów, Rozhniatov), we’ve found a tiny cottage with a cellar where he had spent two years of his childhood, 1942–1944.

Here we present our own footage of the site layered with the excerpts from an interview with Adela Shplak, the only one neighbour and eye-witness of the events.

In 2006 a Pole and an Ukrainian, Michał Jagiełłowicz and Ostap Yurechko who helped the Jews to survive, were awarded the title of the Righteous Among the Nation.
We’ll keep you updated about the forthcoming US movie on the story.

Update 2016: the movie is finished. It’s called “The Barn”.
