Early in February 2018, in the wake of the new Polish law that makes saying that Poles were involved in crimes against Jews during WWII a penal crime, Yad Vashem received a message from Sima Farkash. Farkash described how her uncle, Holocaust survivor Yosef Kornblit, had been restless and was hoping to talk to Yad Vashem about his family’s fate during the Holocaust. A meeting at Yosef’s home to film his testimony was scheduled right away.
