Goldwasser offers a sentimental recollection of the many stops along his journey to hell and back in a conversation that recognizes the complexity of human experience.”

Recommended!: 3*** out of 4 stars -- Video Librarian

 “Horrifying and sad in its inevitability, this documentary mostly impresses us with Goldwasser’s quiet dignity. A strong choice for history buffs and Holocaust collections.”

-- Library Journal

“It is moving, heart-breaking, beautiful, and needs to be shared with the world.”
Barry Goldfarb, Professor of Communication Monroe Community College


“It's a powerful personal work framed and told in such a simple manner. A heart warming portrait of a survivor.” - Mitchell Block,  Academy Award-winning Producer

SAM GOLDWASSER
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.
