The Litvak Connection – Revised and Updated!

During the Shoah, Nazi collaborators from Lithuania and Latvia, helped murder more than 275,000 Jews, many of them known as Litvaks, 96% of those countries Jewish population, the highest percentage rate in any European country. In addition, they helped murder tens of thousands of Jews from other countries transported to Lithuania and Latvia as well and tens of thousands in other countries. Most of these Jews were murdered in the forests, shot in large pits, nearby where they lived, in the five month period before the U.S. formally entered the war in December of 1941 and before the use of the gas chambers in Poland and Germany.

Many of these collaborators were never prosecuted for their crimes. Many fled to various countries, lying on their immigration visas that they were not complicit in war crimes, were admitted and eventually became citizens. The film explores the search for these collaborators, the efforts to prosecute them and the refusal of countries to bring their citizens to justice.

Sobibor – The Plan, The Revolt, The Escape

The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

The Warsaw Ghetto was established in November, 1940. More than 450,000 Jews lived there at one point. Starvation, disease and killings had reduced that number to 350,000 by July, 1942. Then the deportations began to Treblinka.

On Passover eve, April 19, 1943, the German army entered the Ghetto to liquidate and deport the remaining Jews to the Nazi death camps.
