TO NEVER FORGET intimately explores the story behind a single atrocity photograph of a group of women and 11-year-old girl Sorella, during the Holocaust. Consisting of an innovative 360° film (Sorella's Story), and a behind-the-scenes-documentary (Blacklisted in Latvia), this ambitious project emphasises how prejudice - if not challenged - can lead to extreme violence.
In December 1941, on the beaches of Latvia, thousands of Jewish Women and Children were killed by Nazi troops and their Latvian collaborators.
Director Peter Hegedus embarks on the challenging journey to make Sorella’s Story, telling the story of the last day of Sorella’s and the four women’s lives in immersive 360° so we never forget.
There are two separate films, the 360 film which takes audiences to Sorella’s final day and the behind the scene documentary which explores the places and people across the world. We go to the location of the Liepaja where the massacres occurred and discover that making a film about the holocause will have you blacklisted.
Along the way he teams up with Jewish-Australian 90-year-old Ethel Davies whose family was also killed in the same massacre. United they work through the complicated process to bring authenticity to Sorella’s Story, so that she is not lost in history
