Plot Summary: Leo Zisman already had enough of Nazi cruelty when it first asserted itself in his life 75 years ago. The kind of person who, when faced as a boy with a Nazi death camp guard who held a rifle to his head, Zisman fearlessly shouted at him in German, “Shoot…shoot…you pig!”. Now 81, Zisman is committed to taking young men and women, Jews and non-Jews, through the past he lived. A testament to his astounding resilience and determination "The Lion of Judah" chronicles his uncensored tour through the most reprehensible of the death camps-Majdanek, Birkenau and Auschwitz . The young people who join Zisman are similarly outspoken, telling a basic story from multiple points of view and witnessing how quickly a man can go from being part of a community to a mass grave. In its vox-pop style the film also surveys contemporary Poles, illuminating attitudes, unmasking memories and vowing, “never again.” A confident, vibrant, in your face response to time running out for the last generation of Survivors to tell their story, "The Lion of Judah" marks a crucial shift in tone of voice for Holocaust remembrance.
