      Auschwitz - Be a Witness is a video I did for a Hampshire college. The 'Be a Witness' short had a main aim; to bring across the tragic reality of war on civil liberties; its consequence's on its survivors and to help them understand more about the psychology of humans during genocide. Trying to inspire young people to do anything is hard enough but getting them to visit Poland maybe needed something like this. You can tell history was a favourite of mine in high school. Editor's note: Video contains graphic and archival content. Video for educational purposes only. Music: Jack Peñate - No One Lied

            This is the opening scene of 2008 award winning film A Blue Hole in the Sky. It dissolves to another part of the film, where schoolchildren commemorate the genocide on gypsies at the Amsterdam Museumplein, where the Roma anthem Djelem, djelem is performed. This probing film tells the touching story of twelve people who survived the second World War and talk about it for the first time, thus breaking a taboo. Through sometimes violent and also beautiful images and stories, the spectator is sucked in by a piece of history that everybody has always kept silent about up to now. Taking into account that the war is taboo and is never discussed, most certainly not in front of a camera, Bob Entrop has been able to make a unique and special film. As a result of a growing trust and the friendships that have development in the past few years between the Sinti and Roma and filmmaker Bob Entrop, they were willing to go public with their story for the first time. This film is a journey through time. In the present, we travel with three people to Auschwitz, and at the same time we travel with the others back into the past, to the time in which almost a million Sinti and Roma, gipsies, were murdered.

                Amsterdam - Paradiso Nov. 28, 2010 - The One Minutes - Where history starts ... Recording of the Transport XX one-minute film presentation: November 28, 2010 the Dutch Museum of National History and The One Minutes presented a selection of videos about Dutch History in Paradiso, Amsterdam. Artists and art students were asked to make a one minute video about where history starts. The videos were shown at the 'Waar Geschiedenis Begint Show' (Where history starts). Special host is artist and theater director Steven de Jong. Multiple screens at opposite sides in Paradiso offered a good view for everyone on the show. "Transport XX" This short! documentary is a video impression (February 28th, 2009) of the confrontation of passers-by with the TRANSPORT XX installation in Brussels, that presented photographic portraits of 1,200 of the 1,631 Jewish prisoners deported with the 20th train convoy to Auschwitz in 1943. On April 19, 1943 at 10 p.m. the 20th train convoy departed the Dossin barracks (Kazerne Dossin) in Mechelen (Belgium) with 40 cattle cars crammed with 1631 Jewish men, women and children for Auschwitz (Poland). The in Belgium captured Jews were over 90% 'foreigners' (with no Belgian nationality) who either when war broke out or (many) years earlier had fled from mainly Eastern Europe, Germany and Holland to Belgium. Half an hour after the departure of this transport XX three young Belgians from Brussels, Youra Livschitz, Jean Franklemon and Robert Maistriau stopped the train between Boortmeerbeek and Haacht, opened one of the cars and liberated 17 prisoners. Later before the train reaches the German border over 200 other prisoners decide to attempt to escape and also jump out of the cars. In total 233 people attempted to escape, and 188 did succeed. Unfortunately also 26 were killed and 89 others recaptured and interned or put on future trains to Auschwitz. This 20th transport arrived at Auschwitz on April 22. Only 153 of those on board survived this death camp. This was the only documented attack on a death train during the Shoah. Credits The Kazerne Dossin digitalised the photo's of the Dossin prisoners, that mostly are from the "National State Archives of Belgium. Ministry of Justice, Public Safety Office, Foreigner's Police, individual files" The TRANSPORT XX installation in Brussels was organised from 27 January to 15 March 2009 by the BELvue Museum in collaboration with the JMDR / Kazerne Dossin. The photographic portraits were displayed outside in the Royal park in Brussels (opposite the Royal Palace). Thank you: Marjan Verplancke and other co-workers of the Jewish Museum of Deportation and Resistance (JMDR) in Mechelen (Malines, Belgium) and project "Give them a Face". With the ‘Give Them a Face’ project the Kazerne Dossin aims to bring together as many portraits of deportees from the Dossin barracks in Mechelen as possible and give them back their face - and the memory alive. This 'one minute cut' is a reworking of the video "TRANSPORT XX - installation Brussels" presented earlier in 2009 at youtube/channel012. For this special 'The One Minute' edition, the original film of around 3 minutes was edited to a 1-minute cut. Because of the special format of the 'The One Minutes' the credits and title were omitted from the actual footage, the title was added by the organisation at display. © 2009-2012 http://michelvanderburg.com Links iclip @ youtube - http://www.youtube.com/iclip channel012 @ youtube - http://www.youtube.com/channel012 theoneminutes - http://www.theoneminutes.org/ Kazerne Dossin - http://www.kazernedossin.eu/ National State Archives of Belgium - http://www.arch.be/ Waar Geschiedenis Begint - http://www.innl.nl/page/5858/nl Museum of National History - http://www.innl.nl/
