Description

Director Amir Yatziv uses animation to explore the way in which 21st century technology is utilized to document and preserve the historical memory of the Holocaust. A German prosecutor preparing to try an accused Nazi, an Israeli game developer, and a German architect working with an Israeli historian, each have their own reasons for creating virtual worlds that simulate Auschwitz. Avatars of each of these creators guide the viewer through their simulated camps, explaining their motivations. The result is a revelatory new chapter in the ongoing quest to understand and memorialize the Shoah.
