This film tenderly documents the loves—both lost and found—of 17 survivors who have participated in Bearing Witness, a joint project of Hillel at UCLA and the Alan D. Leve Center.


Light out of Darkness, Andrew Rosenstein’s senior project in Film and Television, documented together with Fawad Assadullah, is dedicated to the memory of Sophie Hamburger, a Holocaust survivor with whom Rosenstein worked as a freshman, and whose compassion continues to inspire him.
