Seventy-seven years after the fall of Nazi Germany, the Holocaust stands as a staggering crime against humanity, and the world continues to grapple with the deep void of the six million souls lost. Yet, in the face of unfathomable horror, fleeting moments of bravery and generosity remind us of our capacity for courage and compassion even under the most harrowing circumstances.
A new animated documentary trilogy from Humanity in Action, the international fellowship organization, brings three such histories to life and to new audiences. As we push deeper into the 21st century, humanity faces an inflection point; the last survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and the Great Wars leave us, taking with them the first-hand memories of one of humanities darkest chapters. It is incumbent upon us to safeguard their stories and lessons learned at such tremendous expense. Developed by an international team of documentarians, researchers and animators, this new trilogy preserves these critical stories for future generations.
