The personal voice and individual story of "Samuel Goldwasser" turns the increasingly distant history of the Jewish ghettoes and Nazi concentration camps into an immediate, physically and emotionally experienced reality. With a subdued sadness and an insistent realism, Goldwasser recounts his youth against a backdrop of historical images of cruelty and suffering, and we are left numbed and knowing. "Samuel Goldwasser" is a testament to the power of a thousand pictures and a single human voice.
Sam was preparing for his Bar Mitzvah when Hitler invaded Poland, drastically changing the course of his life. From the eyes of a young boy, Sam takes us through six heart-wrenching years of his life during the Holocaust.
