Shoah cave-survival movie, No Place on Earth, screened in L.A. during Days of Awe / Sept 11th anniversary; Patrons reveal why

In October 1942, Esther Stermer, the matriarch of a Jewish family in the Ukraine, leads her family underground to hide from the pursuing Nazis -- and stays nearly a year and a half. Their harrowing story of survival living in near total darkness in two cold, damp caves is one like no other ever told. It was life...like no place on earth.

In L.A. Jewish philanthropists, led by Jill Black Zalben, presented a screening of
No Place on Earth (directed by Janet Tobias and produced by Rafael Marmor) the documentary tale of Jews who evaded the Nazis by hiding in an underground cave for a year and a half.

During the Days of Awe / Sept 11 anniversary this year, Mrs. Zalben's parents Stanley and Joyce Black, along with Holocaust survivor, Jonah Goldrich, express their reactions to the screening and their intentions for putting it out in public at that time in 2013.
