In Never Forget to Lie, Emmy-award-winning filmmaker and director Marian Marzynski journeys back to Poland to explore the story of his childhood and those of other Jewish child survivors of the Holocaust. Their parents changed their Jewish names, taught them to make the sign of the Catholic cross, and instructed them to lie about their Jewish identities in order to avoid Nazi persecution. They candidly discuss their feelings about Poland, the Catholic Church and the long-term ramifications of hiding their true identities.
Marzynski was on WBUR Radio’s “Here & Now” program today to discuss why he decided to make this film now, the vivid memories of other child survivors and the unfinished business of his own Holocaust story.
