Editorial Reviews

Garri Urban, survivor of Holocaust and Gulag and author of the autobiographical book of the same title, revisits the sites of his horrors and triumphs, 50 years later. Culled from video diaries shot over the course of fourteen years by director Stuart Urban and featuring an extended interview conducted with his father Dr. Garri Urban, TOVARISCH, I AM NOT DEAD details the latter's tireless quest to procure evidence that his family was imprisoned by the Soviet Secret Police before discovering what grim fate they ultimately met during Holocaust. For twenty-five years Dr. Urban has been on a constant mission to find out if anyone in his family survived the Holocaust, and the discovery that he had a brother living in Israel only served to fuel his hunger for more information. Now, as Dr. Urban comes face to face with the former fiancée who was imprisoned for nearly a decade due to being associated with him, the secretive shroud of the KGB finally begins to lift due to the efforts of a noted humanitarian who wasn't willing to let go of the past without putting up a struggle. The Past May Be Buried But It Is Never Dead

There are a lot of questions unanswered in the film, and many nuances to the character of the hero, Garri Urban, but - what a truly remarkable man!
Thanks Stuart for taking us along on this deeply personal journey with your father, as well as your heroic uncle, and the beautiful Noka...

A very well done documentary by the son of a holocaust survivor a gulag survivor among other things. This man conveys his emotions with no reserve. He truly was a hero of sorts. He does a great job putting the timelines together with pictures and historical footage. I really liked this film.

Tovarisch provides one person's experience with the Ukraine ethnic conflict during WW II. It is a timely reminder of one outcome for that region today.

Gave a glimpse of the real person, without actors producing a show for entertainment. I enjoyed the show. I recommend it

I have watched and read about lots of different people and events during WWII and the Holocaust. Until now, I’ve never watched such a film that I didn’t like. Most of the time the subjects of such films are humble and even “ordinary” people. . . . some of which who have done extraordinary things. Not this man. He is the opposite of humble. He’s arrogant beyond belief. Most of the film is shot in 1992 when he and his son return to the former USSR trying to get a copy of his KGB file. He had written an autobiography in the 80’s and many thought at least part of the book was “tall tales”. So he wanted to return, after the fall of communism, to try and get his file to prove what he had written was true. To his chagrin, he was never able to get his complete file. He’s just a really nasty type of person who even treats his own son like dirt. This film was released in 2007, but again most of it is from the early 90’s. If even part of what he claims happened, then certainly he had an interesting life. But I was never able to get past his demeanor for the film to be enjoyable to watch. With huge swaths of the film running from place-to-place trying to get a copy of his file, it just wasn’t for me.

A true story - filmmaker Stuart Urban tracks his father's past through the hall of mirrors that many experienced in Stalin's Soviet Union, a path that intersects with the KGB & the Holocaust.
