January 27, will mark the 7th annual UN Holocaust Remembrance Day. The purpose is to honor the victims of the Holocaust and establish recollections of the tragedies for future generations from preventing genocide from ever occurring again.
In coordination with UN Remembrance Day, director Daniel Finkelman recently filmed one of the first scripted and reenacted music videos, set during the Holocaust entitled, “Rainbow in the Night”. The video offers viewers an emotional and visual outlook into life in Poland, 1939.
“Rainbow in the Night” was filmed in multiple locations including Crakow, Poland, New York and the crew was even given special permission to tape in the Majdanek concentration camp. By filming the scenes in Poland, Mr. Finkelman envisioned that viewers would better understand the conditions and treatment the prisoners experienced. Mr. Finkelman designated the slogan, “The Last Survivor,” as the main concept for the music video. Once the final Holocaust survivor passes away, younger generations will have to refer to books and documentaries to learn about the tragic events.
