|So many were not hidden and did not survive|
|Most of those who survived either went to Palestine,|
|or the United States.
They somehow survived.
And still find a place to smile…
|What is their story? What can we learn from them?
Can we go about our daily lives without asking these questions?
|Narrated by noted American actor Elliott Gould (M*A*S*H, American X, TV’s Friends), Voices includes interviews with survivors of the Holocaust, stories from American soldiers who liberated the camps, and the stories of Jews who escaped or were hidden in Europe during WWII.|
|“The day after liberation, as they took this picture [below],
they told me to smile…but I forgot how.
Until recently I was too embarrased to show this to anyone.”

learned to smile again?
