MTV Commemorates End of Holocaust4/06/2005 8:31 AM Eastern
MTV: Music Television will commemorate the anniversary of the end of the Holocaust with one-hour documentaryI’m Still Here, set to debut Wednesday, May 4 at 8 p.m. (EST/PST).
The film “brings to life the diaries of young people who witnessed first-hand the horrors of the Holocaust” with archival footage, personal photos and text from the diaries themselves, the network said.
I’m Still Here is narrated by MTV News’ John Norris, with a special introduction from Zach Braff and music by Moby. The diaries are read by actors including Elijah Wood, Ryan Gosling, Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, Brittany Murphy, Amber Tamblyn and Joaquin Phoenix.
“The stories featured in I'm Still Here illustrate the strength and courage of these young people in such a personal way that is difficult to replicate in a history book," MTV News & Production executive vice president Dave Sirulnick said in a prepared statement.
"We're honored to be sharing these writers' experiences with our audience and possibly helping them to connect to this previous generation in ways that they may not have expected to,” he added.
