Why does this documentary film deserve your support?
The service of Jews who fought for Central Powers in The Great War (1914-1918) and the tragic fate of surviving veterans in the Holocaust have never been told. These heroes of the WW1 are almost all forgotten. The Nazis had erased their names from regimental rolls of German war heroes and aces. The legacy of these Jewish veterans and their families must be restored.
This Independent documentary by accomplished, young filmmakers provides a compelling now visual perspective on Holocaust, telling the thoroughly researched, heart-breaking truth. No Holocaust or Jewish WW1 footage/photographs have been restored to the level our trailer demonstrates. Some have diminished the Holocaust as a Jewish tragedy only – to change this we are presenting the Jews as faithful and loyal citizens of their countries who will be mercilessly betrayed.
Our goal is to touch every human heart and that all would view the Holocaust as a genocide and tragedy of humanity. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, with this story, we memorialize the Jews who fought for Central Powers out of patriotism and duty.
