We want to make the first feature-length film about Eva Schloss, Auschwitz survivor, stepdaughter of Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank and tireless campaigner against intolerance and hatred. Never again.
It is astounding that no one has ever made a long film about Eva Schloss. This is the opportunity for you to become part of a unique film. Unique in a historical sense with Eva as a relatively unknown connection to the world-famous Anne Frank story.Unique as we are documenting Eva’s own tireless work as a public speaker schools, prisons and so forth, promoting tolerance since the publication of her first book in 1988. For her work, Eva received two honorary doctorates and an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) from her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in 2012.But most of all, our film documents the fight of one of the world’s last Auschwitz survivors against the resurfacing demons of the past in our world today: the rise of intolerance, exclusion and hatred. Now that we have forged a close relationship over the years with Eva, now that we have the opportunity and access to important historical material, we have to tell this story.
Like Eva herself says, “Who will teach them when we are gone?”
