The theme of immigration is very much close to me and this time it is also an opportunity to document my life experiences by utilizing my professional expertise in video-documentary.

As a professional writer and journalist, the chronicler of our times, I see my duty in meticulously recording the accounts of live members, survivors of Nazism, war heroes, the winners, who broke the backbone of fascism. That’s why I created a film about all Soviet Jews who are American citizens, but remain true to the culture and traditions of their ancestors. I see the greatest interest in the discovery of my own roots, attainment of self-knowledge through the awareness of my nation’s history.

The main goal of the films is to raise awareness and inform the audience of the lives of the WWII Soviet Jewish veterans and their families.
