Sir Winston Churchill Visiting Jerusalem, 1921
WHO WE ARE We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to saving thousands of hours of deteriorating celluloid film footage, a treasure trove of invaluable documentation of Jewish life from all over the world. Our goal is to preserve these visual elements and make them accessible to the public free of charge.
WHAT WE DO Collect, digitize and restore the innumerable amount of hours of celluloid film reels of historical importance that are disintegrating and make them accessible to the public free of charge.
For many of these films, there is no record of their content or the story they tell. The majority is in a state of advanced decay, dusty and torn. A lack of funds coupled with a lack of awareness abets their neglect and they continue to disintegrate day by day.
If this rare historical footage is allowed to decay, much of the visual documentation of the Jewish past will be lost to oblivion. Preventing it is urgent and essential.
