1:00 PM Film: Try to Remember Never Forget Try To Remember Never Forget is a documentary that shares the words and wisdom of Holocaust Survivor Ruth Sax, created by author and daughter Sandra Scheller. The film was co-created, directed and edited by Olena Zernychenko.

The film brings together interviews with Sax, newsreels of the Holocaust, and footage from Sax's encounters with a variety of audiences, particularly students in their classrooms. It recounts Sax's pre-war life in Czechoslovakia, as well as her internment at Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, and Oederan.

Filmmaker Zernychenko immigrated from the Ukraine to Nevada, where she received a bachelor's degree from the Art Institute of Las Vegas. Scheller, company manager for The Flying Cranes aerial ballet from Moscow, met her future collaborator when Zernychenko was making a film about sand artist Vira Syvorotkina, a member of the Cirque de Soleil. "We started working on the documentary two years ago,"
