NCJFs JF2013_Numbered-0001.showcase_3This powerful film examines the complex relationships Auschwitz survivors—and their descendents—have with the numbers tattooed on their arms. Interviews with more than 30 survivors reveal a variety of attitudes and plenty of stories about how other people react to the inescapable past writ large on their skin. “To me, this is not a scar,” Leo Luster, 82, says. “It is a medal.” Anshel Sharezky, 81, one of three men with almost consecutive numbers (B14594, B14595, B14597), explains, “We were strangers standing in line in Auschwitz. We all survived different paths of hell, and we met in Israel. We stand here together now after 65 years. Do you realize the magnitude of the miracle?” Numbered was recently featured on Page One of The New York Times. (Israel/USA, Hebrew w/ English subtitles, Directors: Uriel Sinai & Dana Doron)
