The new film “No Place on Earth” tells the incredible story of a small group of Jews who literally went underground, into caves, to escape the horrors of the Holocaust. It happened in 1942 in the Ukraine. The story began to come out only much later when a cave explorer from New York City happened upon the scene. And now it’s told in a documentary that mixes the first-person accounts of survivors with re-enactments of events from the past.
I recently spoke to the filmmaker, Janet Tobias, who is a veteran of network news and PBS, and Sonia Dodyk, one of the film’s subjects who tells of her experiences as a young girl in the caves.
A transcript will be posted soon.
