  • Directed by: Yoram Hoenig
  • Produced by: Micha Shagrir

The profound and moving stories of seven holocaust survivors who have played a significant role in the development of the Israeli society. The contributions of the survivors to modern Israel are invaluable: Israel would not look, sound, taste and feel the way it does without their work. The optimism in the stories of the survivors is palpable, and it provides fresh insight into the capabilities of human strength and determination.
