1. Ruth (Simon) Heinemann - A Kinder's Survival (IN GERMAN)


    from Susan Berman Added 145 0 0

    Ruth (Simon) Heinemann recounts her family's experience preceding, during and after the Holocaust. It's a story of courage, love, sacrifice, survival and honor. Unfortunately, its also one of discrimination, antisemitism, deceit and genocide. Shortly after her father is arrested on Kristallnacht on November 9th, 1938, Ruth, 13, and her younger sister, Hilde, 11, find themselves on a train bound for Holland via Hamburg. This was the first leg of their journey to England on something known as the Kindertransport. They became part of a mission that saved 10,000 Jewish children when they were sent to England for safe keeping by their loved ones during the Holocaust. What happens to the rest of their family as they find themselves on the ill fated ship, the St. Louis, bound for Havana, Cuba is tragic and heartbreaking. This true story is told in German by Ruth and was filmed by her two grandsons David and Dan Berman in her home in Florida in January, 2011. The story begins in Germany and takes us to England, Holland, United States and to Poland where half the family is murdered in the concentration camp, Sorbibor.

                      from michelvanderburg Added

                      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/
