About the Film

Documentary short, Austria 2015, 22 min
Director: Wolfgang Els
Writer: Edward Serotta

Shelly Weiner and Raya Kizhnerman live in Greensboro, NC. Both born in the bustling city of Rivne—then in Poland, now in Ukraine, it was home to 20,000 Jews. In 1941, the Germans stormed into town and planned on murdering every Jew they could find. How Shelly and Raya survived the massacre is a story they tell themselves, not long after they visited Rivne in 2013.
