Elliott Saiontz: This is the story of Srulik Feldman, my great-grandfather. He was put in Nazi death camps during World War II. This is a closeup of his number from Auschwitz; A17606. That was his number and he told us back then your number was your name; that was all he was to them.

Amazing
31 August 2018 | by saiontz-18525See all my reviews

The second this movie started I could tell it would be amazing. Just the act of incorporating children into a holocaust (WWII) was an outstanding idea. The watercolor photos over real images was a great idea too. Not only that but Jeff Scher's drawings were simply amazing. I encourage anyone out there, child or adult, to watch this movie and be blown away by this heartbreaking survival story of Jack Feldman.
