Jody Savin is working with curator Maya Savin Miller and filmmaker Randall Miller (Coffee Wars and Bottle Shock), to bring Strobel’s work to the big screen. They are currently raising the funds in partnership with a 501c3 to make a feature film documentary about Trudie, her survival in the camps, and the tapestry work that led her out of a crippling depression later in life. Using new 3D technology and screen projection, the film will offer a uniquely immersive storytelling experience.
“Meeting a Holocaust survivor and hearing their first-hand testimony is the most effective way to understand the horrors of what happened,” said Savin. “Our hope is that this documentary will bring necessary attention to the perils of racism and intolerance around the world.”
As for Strobel, she sees the book and the documentary as an opportunity to ensure that future generations are educated about the Holocaust and the dangers of all forms of intolerance. Please contact us for ways to either invest in the film or donate to the film project. We are hoping to raise $500,000 to make Trudie's film a reality.
Tax deductible donations of any size can be made to the ABI Holocaust Film Fund, a 501(c)3.
