Identity Films and Productions is making a series of ground breaking virtual reality films for the Holocaust Centre in Melbourne. Every year over 20,000 school children visit the Centre where their most impactful experience is meeting a survivor. But soon there will be no Holocaust survivors left to meet. In partnership with the Jewish Holocaust Centre, Identity Films travelled with 87 year old Holocaust survivor Shiya Chaskiel back to the Auschwitz and Buchenwald Nazi camps where he told his story captured in 360 degree filming: immersive, confronting, touching. This is as close to a Holocaust survivor as future generations will be able to get.
To view the film visit the Melbourne Holocaust Museum.
