THE TATTOOED TORAH

Dir. Marc Bennet
21min | USA | Documentary Short

Over the last three decades, the beloved children’s book by Marvell Ginsburg has been a powerful resource for Holocaust education. Narrated by Ed Asner, the film brings to life the true story of the rescue and restoration of a small Torah from Brno, Czechoslovakia, and teaches the Holocaust not only as a period of destruction but also as an opportunity for redemption
