Le Chemin Des Juifs
Daniel Bhattacharya is a professional violinist and filmmaker who has been our houseguest for several months. He and his family have purchased a home in Okotoks which they take possession of next month. While Daniel's music resume is long and impressive, I didn't have a sense of his filmmaking experience. Earlier this week, he sent me a link to watch Le Chemin Des Juifs, a documentary film that was released in 2019.
David's firsthand testimonial, captured on film by Daniel, is absolutely gripping. Watching David go back in time and recount every step of his journey during the war rings true in a way that is far more powerful than a thirdhand account or as part of a fictionalized story or movie. This man sitting in front of the camera actually lived through this horrific chapter of human history.
