Kovno Ghetto: A Buried History

KOVNO GHETTO features moving interviews that bring to light atrocities that are stunning in their scope, and more so in that they are rarely mentioned. Discover how fellow townsmen murdered 6,000 Kovno Jews in one horrible day! Find out how the Germans forced all Jews to move to the ghetto of Slobodka, then killed thousands when the population got too crowded. And hear gut-wrenching stories of loss from survivors who were helpless to save family members and loved ones in the face of the machinery of hatred and death. In the memories of those who persevered we are reminded of man’s capacity for evil, and of the necessity to never let such abominations occur again.
