“16 Photographs at Ohrdruf” is hailed at major film festivals
Tuesday, May 28, 2013
In “16 Photographs at Ohrdruf,” Nash, an Associate Professor of photography at Lesley University, tells the powerful story of the soldiers who uncovered the first concentration camp found by the Allies during World War II.
Guided only by a small stack of photos taken by his Army medic grandfather at the Ohrdruf camp, Nash tries to unravel a family secret that began on April 4, 1945 – a journey he tells over the course of this important and riveting film. But Nash’s documentary is about more than the horrors of the Holocaust. It’s a testament to the power of the human story, and to the untold stories in our midst and the importance of bringing them to light.
In addition to the Boston International Film Festival and G.I. Film Festival accolades, Nash has garnered wide attention for “16 Photographs at Ohrdruf,” including interviews with major news outlets such as National Public Radio, the Associated Press and the Washington Examiner.
