Best Documentary of the Year!

October 17, 2016
Unbelievable. Truly amazing. Beautifully shot. Amazing Interviews. Great research and history. Goose bump level stories. I cried in several places. Incredible blend of historical footage, photos and interviews. The pacing was great. It had a pulse. A pace that kept me leaning in. I fell in love with the people... and their stories touched my heart. Bravo!

It's so well done, the interviews are fascinating and the original footage is gripping, raw, powerful - hard to watch in places, but always fascinating. A masterfully made and fascinating film , it held my attention all the way through.

An extrordinary film

Unbelievable work in documentary. Beautifully filmed with a surprising and amazing wealth of information and footage for such a small community of Sephardi Jews. Interesting to have found out that a member of this community was the Confino family whose immigration story is one of New York Tenement Museum's touring attractions.

A very moving film that you will want to see over and over again.

I have also seen a preview of this film and was locked in on the movie for the entire duration. I connected with the survivors through their stories and felt their emotions, their fear. It is so terribly disheartening that such a level of ignorance and greed can exist to such a degree, so much so as to threaten the existence of such a beautiful group of people.

Illuminating film on one of the former Sephardic communities in Greece

I've seen a preview of this film and it's really something unexpected. It will touch your heart and open a view of a beautiful Jewish community that is now lost to the ages.
