From the Producer of Circle Unbroken: A Gullah Journey from Africa to America comes the film that served to launch The Holocaust Education Film Foundation. It tells a story of persecution and one man’s inner-strength, fortitude and daring escape from internment in Nazi Germany.  Joe Engel’s determination to survive has resulted in him becoming a treasured citizen, community leader, teacher and philanthropist in America.

Born in Zakroczym, Poland in 1927, Joe Engel was taken by the Nazis at 14 and never saw his parents again. He is the embodiment of living history and spends his retirement years ensuring the Holocaust is never forgotten.

From the overwhelming despair of the Warsaw Ghetto, to the shroud of unceasing death and suffering that was Birkenau and Auschwitz, Joe then takes you through his escape from a Death Train at 17 and covert work as a freedom fighter until Liberation in 1945.

Many people can tell a story. Very few can compel you to listen. Joe Engel, at 90 years of age, knows how to tell his story. His life is a story of faith, renewal, inner-strength and redemption. He is a charming storyteller who hopes that people will listen and learn and most of all… “never forget”.
