The Tattooed Torah



Availability ended PST
Narrative Short, USA/Czech Republic, 2019. Directed by Marc Bennett.
Over the last three decades, Marvell Ginsburg's beloved children's book has been a powerful resource for educating children about the Holocaust. This remarkable adaptation into an animated short film brings original illustrator Martin Lemelman's rich artwork to life. Now more than ever, it is essential to continue teaching the lessons of the Holocaust to young children in an impactful and palatable way, so that such horrific events are never forgotten and never repeated. The film is made all the more charming with the narration by the late Ed Asner.
