Archiving of film material

in German:
Archivierung von Filmmaterial




In her work as a journalist for German television, in the 70s Renata Erich made films on synagogues, Jewish cemeteries and people who had survived the Holocaust in places behind the Iron Curtain. Many recordings in Czernovitz, Sighet, several places in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, however above all in Romania, which no longer exist were recorded both in audio and video form. Renata Erich would like to safeguard this rare film material, in edited form, for posterity.

in German:
In ihrer Tätigkeit als Journalistin für das deutsche Fernsehen drehte Renata Erich in den 70er und 80er Jahren Filme über Synagogen, jüdische Friedhöfe und Personen, die an Orten hinter dem 'Eisernen Vorhang' den Holocaust überlebt hatten. Viele Aufnahmen in den Orten Czernovitz, Sighet, mehreren Orten der ehemaligen Österreichisch-Ungarischen Monarchie, vor allem jedoch Rumäniens, die nicht mehr existieren, wurden in Ton und Film festgehalten. Dieses seltene Filmmaterial möchte Renata Erich in überarbeiteter Form der Nachwelt erhalten.
