Description

Local filmmaker Roger Lyons pays tribute to Boston's own Steve Ross.

 

Only 9 years old when he was first taken by the Nazis, Steve Ross miraculously survived 10 concentration camps. His experience in the camps as well as his memory of liberation when a kind American soldier showed him the compassion he hadn't seen in years shaped his life moving forward. While working with disadvantaged youth and establishing Boston's iconic Holocaust Memorial, Ross continued his tireless search for the kind soldier who changed his life.
