Bearing Witness: The Voices of Our Survivors unites the oldest and youngest generations of the Jewish community. In the film, six Holocaust survivors from five different countries share their experiences with teens. These survivors' individual stories tell the Holocaust's collective history. Their personal memories, will to survive, and messages of hope inspire, sharing the truth of the Holocaust so that future generations "never forget."

"There are essentially two kinds of documentaries. The first turns you on to a story you knew nothing about. The second documents an incident you've heard of -- maybe even have read about or studied -- but uncovers facts that are not only new to you but also put a completely different perspective on what you thought really happened. Call it a revelatory experience. This unforgettable film from director/producer/editor Heather Elliott-Famularo is a triumphant example of the latter."         - Larry Richman, PROnetworks
