About

"FORGOTTEN" is a film about Polish Catholics, the second highest concentration of victims and survivors of the Holocaust. I am raising funds to get my short film "FORGOTTEN" made into a feature film. The amount I need to raise is $50,000 in order to take my script and short film out to Los Angeles to meet with producers in the film industry.  There are currently two producers in Hollywood who are interested in my film. If I can raise the needed amount I can take my project back out to Hollywood to begin the process of making a feature film. 

I have written a script for a full-length feature film, which I started writing back in 2007. My motivation and inspiration for this passion project are the stories of my grandparents, who endured and survived the camps during WWII. My entire life, when speaking with people about my grandparents' story, people assumed I was of Jewish descent, not Catholic. Upon further research, including visiting family in Poland, interviewing Polish Catholics and touring Auschwitz and Birkenau, I learned that the second highest concentration of victims and survivors had been forgotten and left out of a large majority of history and textbooks. When speaking with survivors, they asked me why their stories have been forgotten. My goal with this film is to tell my grandparents' story, who represent Polish Catholics, and to educate the world that along with the Jewish people, Polish Catholics suffered as well. To leave Polish Catholics out of history would be a shame. Adolf Hitler once said "The destruction of Poland is our primary task...kill without mercy all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language." 6 million Polish people died in the Holocaust, 3 million Jews...3 million Catholics.

"FORGOTTEN" has been accepted into the New Filmmakers Film Festival in New York City. Other than Kickstarter, in order to reach my goal, I will be doing fundraisers throughout the country.

Risks and challenges

I don't see any challenges at this point. Once I have the funds raised for this project I can take this back out to Los Angeles and be one step closer to making a feature film.
