Produced by the Holocaust Education Film Foundation, "I Danced for the Angel of Death: The Dr. Edith Eva Eger Story" is a one-hour autobiographical film about Holocaust survivor Edith Eva Eger. In it, Dr. Eger personally weaves viewers throughout her remarkable journey, and is joined by Alan Moskin, a 95-year-old Patton’s Army soldier who liberated Gunskirchen Lager, the camp Dr. Eger was in at the time. The film tells the story of how Dr. Eger’s bravery kept her alive through three concentration camps yet left her struggling for years with flashbacks and survivor’s guilt. Viewers will watch as Edith discovers that to heal, she needed to forgive the one person she had been unable to forgive: herself.
