In commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and Yom Ha’Shoah, “Finding Kalman,” a 30-minute documentary that tells the story of Holocaust survivor Anna Jacobs and her brother, will air April 7 at 5 p.m on WETA HD; April 13 at 11:30 a.m. on WHUT; and nationwide during the month of April.
Like “Through the Eye of the Needle,” “Finding Kalman,” written, directed and produced by Roz Jacobs and Laurie Weisman with a score by Emmy and Oscar nominated composer Ross Levinson, uses art to explore themes of the Holocaust and its ramifications on four generations of Jacobs including Anna Jacob’s Baltimore-based son and grandson.
“Finding Kalman” is a production of Memory Project Productions, Inc., a nonprofit organization created by Roz Jacobs and Laurie Weisman, that honors Holocaust and genocide victims by conveying their experiences through art, story and media. Along with “Finding Kalman,” The Memory Project has also produced a museum exhibition, outreach program and a book called “Finding Kalman: A Boy in Six Million” written by Roz and Anna Jacobs.
