This film by Boris Maftsir is part of the director’s documentary megaproject, Searching for the Unknown Holocaust, in which he traces the genocide of Jews at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators in the countries that comprised the former USSR.
Through a series of raw, bone-chilling interviews with those who were there and lived to tell, the film follows the harrowing story of Transnistria’s Jews, with an emphasis on the Jewish population of occupied Odessa. Transnistria is the name given to a region in south Ukraine by the Germans and Romanians, after they had conquered in World War II. The film highlights the role played by Romanians in the Holocaust, their approach to the “Jewish Problem,” and the horrors that took place in the Pechora concentration camp.
