Please watch the film, on your own, prior to joining the Q&A, using the link below:
We Shall Not Die Now is a documentary film that chronicles the Holocaust, when, between 1939 and 1945, over six million Jews and millions of others were systematically murdered by the Nazi regime.
Seventy-five years after the conclusion of the war, the film explores not only the horrific human tragedy and what we can learn from it, but also the resilience of those that rebuilt their lives despite the unimaginable.
Told by the survivors and liberators who experienced it firsthand, We Shall Not Die Now is an exploration into the darkest and brightest sides of the human spirit.
Director Ashton Gleckman, Documentary, USA, 2019, 100 minutes
