In the early 1990s, renowned Holocaust testimony expert Lawrence Langer conducted over 80 hours of interviews with Holocaust survivors residing in Brookline, Masachusetts. For over 20 years, they sat in a metal closet, waiting to be edited and produced into something usable for education purposes. Finally, in 2016, experienced producer R. Harvey Bravman was tasked with digitizing and directing a feature length film out of the tapes. He painstakingly worked through the testimony to produce a film, Soul Witness, that eloquently spoke to their experiences.
In late 2019, the film premiered in Pittsburgh to raise funds for the 3 congregations affected by the shooting here on October 27, 2018.
The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is delighted to have Harvey join us for another program in Pittsburgh, in September.
