Re: “Local filmmaker Mitchell Lieber presents his work-in-progress Holocaust documentary Rumbula's Echo

I visited the Rumula Forest cemetery in May 1989 .... it was an eye-opening experience .... we visited all the mass gravesites .... barren grass with no markings as to who was buried there .... including the furthest mass grave, by the railroad tracks, that made it so easy for the Nazis and their collaborators to move throngs of people to their ultimate demise .... I also found the only grave marker, which had been thrown into the high brush near the top of an overgrown hill next to the furthest gravesite, commemorating the death of a young girl .... it literally changed my commitment to make sure this and other atrocities of genocide are NEVER FORGOTTEN.
