Vishneva, Belarus Soviet Union Poland
By Dr Jacob Podber
His film “Vishneva, Belarus Soviet Union Poland” is grounded in the oral history testimony of a Holocaust survivor and has been deconstructed by the interviewee’s son. Unlike most oral histories that focus on the words of the interviewee, “Vishneva, Belarus Soviet Union Poland” uses silent images from the interview superimposed with typed memories that describe the unspoken pain borne by father and son through more than half a century.
