This week we are proud to feature Dana Arschin, ’18 alumna from the Sinai Temple Young Adult group. Inspired by her experience on the March of the Living, Dana, a reporter for Fox 5 News in New York, went on to document and produce three short films about her experience. She won an Emmy for her outstanding reporting.

As the granddaughter of an Auschwitz survivor, I always felt it was my duty to keep my Poppy’s story alive and honor the memories of my ancestors who perished in the Holocaust. It was life-changing for me to walk in my Poppy’s footsteps as a March of the Living participant. For the first time, I came face-to-face with the horrors he endured for 2+ years in Auschwitz-Birkenau. That experience awakened me— giving me a new sense of responsibility to share Holocaust-related stories.

My journey to Poland fueled my desire to document and produce three shorts films that later aired on Fox 5 in the New York/Tri-state area.

 The first film, ‘The Forgotten Camps,’ focuses on some of the most notorious Nazi death camps that operated throughout Poland during WWII.

The second film, ‘A Community Reborn,’ highlights the rebirth of Jewish life happening right now in Krakow, Poland.

The third film, ‘March of the Living,’ follows thousands of MOTL participants as they walk from Auschwitz I to Auschwitz II (Birkenau) on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

I am incredibly honored and humbled to have won an Emmy award for ‘The Forgotten Camps‘ and an Emmy nomination for ‘March of the Living.’ This recognition proves that there’s still an audience that wants to hear these stories and hopefully join our efforts in passing them along to future generations.
