Numbered

2012 / Israel / 60 mins / Dir: Dana Doron, Uriel Sinai
Hebrew, with English subtitles

An estimated 400,000 people were tattooed with serial numbers at Auschwitz. Co-directed by prizewinning photojournalist Uriel Sinai, this ‘explosive and engrossing 60-minute homage’ (New York Times) includes searing portraits of women and men displaying their numbers almost as badges of honour. One used his as the code for a family safe. Another always covered his with long sleeves. Three men with consecutive numbers were miraculously reunited. There are tender love stories within the larger epic of loss yet the message is somehow upbeat and about the dignity of survival.

This screening, presented by UK Jewish Film for Holocaust Memorial Day, will be followed by a discussion with Artist David Breuer-Weil and Dr Toby Haggith, Senior Curator, Department of Research, Imperial War Museum on the role of art and culture in keeping history alive.
