Over the last three decades, the beloved children's book by Marvell Ginsburg, The Tattooed Torah, has been a powerful resource for Holocaust education for children. The book recounts the true story of the rescue and restoration of a small Torah from Brno, Czechoslovakia, and teaches the Holocaust not only as a period of destruction but also as an oppertunity for redemption.
Narrated by Ed Asner, the film brings illustrator Martin Lemelman's rich artwork to life, and will allow this story to reach a much broader audience all over the world. Now more than ever, it is essential to continue teaching the lessons of the Holocaust to young children in an impactful and palatable way, so that such horrific events are never forgotton and never repeated.
