Award-winning film director and artist Philippe Mora was born the year after World War II ended, but he is very much a survivor of the Holocaust – an experience he explores in the new documentary “Three Days in Auschwitz.”

Mora’s very personal film is now playing in select theaters, courtesy of Vision Films. The documentary brings audiences on an emotional and evocative journey accented by a moving score from music legend Eric Clapton.

Mora took an intimate approach to making the film and telling his own family’s story. From Melbourne, to Paris, and London, he traces the people who lived through the horrors of concentration camps and discovers how his own life might have been ended before he was even born.

Not only did Mora lose eight members of his family at Auschwitz, but his own mother narrowly evaded certain death at the concentration camp by just one day. For many years, he was unaware of this story, as well as the role his father played in the French Resistance. Now he returns to the barbed wire fences that corral the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp—a symbol of barbarianism and what humans are capable of.

“I thought it better to make a very personal film so that people could relate to it rather than try to make an objective documentary, which would have been impossible, ” Mora says.

Despite its dramatic themes, the film leaves viewers with a valuable and uplifting message: The resilience of the human spirit over tragic circumstances, and the importance of learning from our past so that we can better ensure a brighter future.

Clapton co-produced and composed and performed the original score, which is not available for sale and can only be heard by viewing the film.
“Three Days in Auschwitz” is now playing in select theaters across North America. The special screening events also include a selection of short film segments from Mora’s other films on the subject, “Monsieur Mayonnaise” and “German Sons”, and an exclusive Director Q&A. The film is also available on DVD and VOD in both USA and Canada.
