“Do you know what happened to me on Dizengoff Street?”

New York Times Op-Docs: I Have a Message for You. This is a short video documentary by Matan Rochlit about holocaust survivor Klara Prowisor. “To escape Auschwitz, she left her father to die. Decades later, she got a message from him.”

“My grandmother Lea once told me a story about the woman who lived next door to her in Tel Aviv, of her capture by the Nazis in Belgium and of an unfathomable decision she had to take to save herself. I never forgot it […]

Many years later, once I’d become a documentary filmmaker, I decided to find out whether the woman was still alive.

She was. Klara was 92 years old and still living in the same Tel Aviv apartment. I flew out to see her the following week and asked her to tell me the story I’d heard from my grandmother in her own words.”
