MAY YOUR MEMORY BE LOVE. In March 1943, twenty-year-old Ovadia Baruch was deported together with his family from Greece to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Upon arrival his extended family was sent to the gas chambers. He struggled to survive. Ultimately he met a Jewish woman and developed a loving relationship despite inhuman conditions. It is a miraculous story. This film is part of the “Witnesses and Education” project of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Filmed on location where the events originally transpired.

DAYS OF WAITING. A film that will move you tremendously! A poignant documentary about an extraordinary woman Estelle Ishigo, one of the few Caucasians to be interned with 110,000 Japanese Americans sent to internment camps during WWII in 1942. During internment, this artist recorded the rigors of camp life through drawings and photographs. This film is not of Sephardic content, but it shows what happened to the Japanese in America.
