ATJC Film 2018

Description Twelve survivors, twelve families torn apart by the Holocaust, twelve people striving to build a new future after the war. Blending unique and intimate testimony with immersive archive, DESTINATION UNKNOWN unveils the human stories underlying the events of the Holocaust. These include one of the few escapees from the terror of Treblinka, and an exclusive interview with Mietek Pemper, who helped Oskar Schindler compile his List. The film traces the narrow paths to survival, whether in hiding, fighting as partisans, or through enduring the camps such as Kraków-Płaszow, Mauthausen and Auschwitz-Birkenau. While a few managed to escape, most had to try to find a way to stay alive until the end of the war. Their stories do not end with liberation. We see how they had to survive the chaos that came afterwards, and their attempts to build new lives.In 2003, following a chance encounter with the son of a Holocaust survivor, Llion Roberts embarked upon a remarkable journey. Over the next fourteen years he travelled the world, interviewing and filming Holocaust survivors. Some, like New Jersey resident Ed Mosberg, regularly returned to the camps in order to remember the traumatic events of the war. Others, like Mietek Pemper, who had been the stenographer for the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp Commandant - Amon Göth and advisor to Oskar Schindler, had previously refused to talk on film. Gradually, a picture emerged of survivors who had each experienced a different horror but who all shared the seemingly impossible task of living with the memory. In 2014, director & editor Claire Ferguson started to work with the Film's producer - Llion Roberts on a feature-length account of the survivors' stories. The result of the entire fourteen year process is DESTINATION
