JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival - Every Face Has a Name
On 28th April 1945, several ferries carrying thousands of concentration camp survivors docked in Malmo, Sweden. Film crews captured the undernourished victims' first steps in freedom. Over 70 years later, some of the survivors see these videos for the very first time.

In almost magical moments, some of the ex-detainees recognize themselves or relatives among the survivors. The shock of seeing themselves, friends and loved ones on film is palpable. While staring at the footage they are temporarily transported back to the brutality of life in the camps and the euphoria of liberation.

"In the fascinating Swedish documentary "Every Face Has a Name," helmer Magnus Gerttentracks down and interviews survivors from German concentration camps seen in a 35mm archival film reel showing their arrival at the harbor of Malmo, Sweden, on April 28, 1945. The group includes Jews from all over Europe, Norwegian prisoners of war, Polish mothers and children, members of the French resistance and British spies  and perhaps unique among them, a young Italian-American who was accused of being a spy while visiting her grandparents and deported to Auschwitz."
