Rumbula's Echo (2016)
1h 40min · Documentary · 30 December 2016
The filmmaker's genealogy search for his newborn's namesake brings him to the early 20th century lives and terrible mid-century fate of Latvian Jews. Nearly all trapped in the country during WWII are killed. The filmmaker's relatives are among the 25,000 murdered in two days by firing squads at Rumbula Forest in Riga, one of the Holocaust's largest massacres. Viewers see what occurred at Rumbula and throughout the country as survivors, escapees, perpetrators and bystanders describe the massacres. Stories of rescue, reunion and survival emerge along with how the vast majority were killed and what we all lost with their murder.
