(ABC News Australia) Random but lifesaving acts of kindness are celebrated in a new documentary featuring the stories of members of Melbourne’s Jewish community who survived the Holocaust.
Ever Grateful was co-produced by Philip Maisel, one of five survivors who recalled the moment an enemy’s unexpected humanity altered their fate.
Mr Maisel, 94, is the keeper of personal histories that must never be forgotten.
He runs the Testimonies Project at the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick, which recorded the accounts of 1,600 survivors.
“I feel that my work is very, very important. To teach people about humanity. This is my message of the documentary,” he said.
