This video documentary was created by Steven Vogel’s son, Jim, not only as a loving tribute to his father but also as a memory for grandchildren and generations that follow . The video is a compilation of 17 years interviews and discussions between Steven and Jim as well as an interview with the Steven Spielberg Shoah Project . The video contains original family photos and video from Budapest. Following the screening join us for a talk back with filmmaker Jim Vogel.
