'Oscar's Docs' Remembers the Holocaust

Monday, 03 Nov 2008 04:43 PM

Beverly Hills, CA — The 1995 Oscar-winning documentaries “One Survivor Remembers” and “Anne Frank Remembered” will screen on Monday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood as part of “Oscar’s Docs, Part Four: Academy Award-Winning Documentaries 1988–1997.”

In the documentary short subject “One Survivor Remembers,” Holocaust survivor Gerda Weissman Klein describes her six-year ordeal as a victim of Nazi cruelty in which she lost her family, home, possessions and community. Oscar-winning producer Kary Antholis and co-producer Michael Berenbaum will participate in a post-screening discussion.

The documentary feature “Anne Frank Remembered” is the intimate biographical portrait of the young Jewish girl whose simple diary entries and observations brought the grim realities of the Holocaust to millions of readers around the world. The evening will feature an onstage discussion with Oscar-winning producer-director Jon Blair.

“Oscar’s Docs” is a comprehensive screening series of every short subject and feature to win the Academy Award for documentary filmmaking since the category was established in 1941.

The retrospective will feature the best available prints — often newly struck or restored editions from the documentary collection of the Academy Film Archive.
