Part of the film: The Ripple Project: ONE

A friendship born in shared survival is given new life in the poetry of remembrance.

Nearly two decades ago, 16-year-old Liron Unreich filmed his grandfather, poet and writer Isaac Ginzburg, as he opened up about the atrocities he experienced during the Holocaust. Just three years later, Isaac died of kidney failur e, likely resulting from an intentional overdose. Liron sits down with his grandfather’s dearest friend, Herman Taube, the 92-year-old writer who has dedicated his life to chronicling survivors’ stories through his poetry, and shows him the old footage of Isaac.

While watching his friend candidly share his painful experiences, Herman reflects on the synchronicity between his life and Isaac’s and the vastly different ways the two men dealt with the tragedy they had both experienced.
