help us meet our fundraising goal!
We are so grateful for all the help thus far getting our survivor interviews covered and our recent trip to London to interview subject matter experts Sarah Helm and Nikolaus Wachsmann. We are now trying to raise another $20,000 to fund interviews with world-renowned academics on this subject that will help tell the story of the Jewish women in the camp and how they participated in the rescue. Consequently, we would like to interview Dr. Judith Agassi, author of the Jewish Women Prisoners of Ravensbruck and the daughter of Ravensbrück survivor, Margarete Buber-Neumann. Dr. Agassi, who currently lives in Tel Aviv, will tell us not only about the Jewish women prisoners in the camp, but how her mother, a German prisoner, helped save the "Rabbits." We would also like to interview Dr. Rochelle Saidel, author of the books: The Jewish Women of Ravensbrück Concentration Camp and Sexual Violence against Jewish Women during the Holocaust. She has unique insights not only on Jewish women in the camp and how they participated in the rescue of the “Rabbits,” but on the sexual violence that women were exposed to during the Holocaust (sadly, a subject that was brought up by all the survivors that we interviewed). She also discusses how women survived differently than men in the camps.
Your donations cover the cost of the crew (excluding the Producer/Director), the camera and lighting rental, travel, insurance, and transcriptions/translations. Please help us spread the word about the campaign to others who might be interested in supporting this documentary so we can fund these important interviews. We are so grateful for your support!
