Editorial Reviews


Recalling details of life in the ghetto both random acts of kindness and terrible betrayal is the unfinished business of [Marzynskis] life and his films. Highly recommended. --Video Librarian

Product Description

Marian Marzynski was born in Poland and survived the Holocaust as a Jewish child hidden by Christians. He has been making documentary films for over 50 years, first in Poland,- where- during the '60s he was one of the pioneers of cinema verite, then in Denmark, and for the last 30 years in the United States. He was a Guggenheim Fellow in 1982 and won two Emmy-® Awards for his documentaries.- He is a major contributor to such PBS series as AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, NOVA, and FRONTLINE. Some of his films like- Return to Poland- (1982), and- Jewish Mother (1984), dealt with the subject of Holocaust. The three-hour- Shtetl- (1996), became the most important work of his career.- In 2005 he produced A Jew Among the Germans for FRONTLINE, the story of building a Berlin memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe.- In Never Forget to Lie, the most recent of Marzynski's critically-lauded autobiographical films, the director explores, for the first time, his own wartime childhood and the experiences of other child survivors, teasing out their feelings about Poland, the Catholic Church, and the ramifications of identities forged under circumstances where survival began with the directive [never forget to lie].

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Who You Are... March 21, 2014
Marian Marzynski, a Jewish Holocaust survivor, a film maker from Poland living in US married to a Polish Catholic turns the camera on himself in order to make this documentary. When he was five years old, he was told in order to stay alive he needed to forget who he was. Seventy years later, Marian one of 28,000 Holocaust survivors returns to Poland to face his past and other Jewish Holocaust survivors.

Every Jew or none Jew should watch this documentary and hear the stories of Poland's Holocaust survivors' cries, fear and suffering that will take anyone back in time, so should anyone who forgets history and more importantly does not learn from history. This film should serve as a reminder to the citizens of planet earth that if history chooses to repeat itself, unlike 1940s, this time probably there would be no survivors left to tell any story.

A very painful, well done documentary about history that should have no place to repeat itself regardless of race, religion or region. Why US did not and has not delivered those missiles to Ukraine is beyond me. Bravo.
