“I had my red hat. It was like… like something that kept me safe.”– Hanka Neiger Ablin.

A WNET-NY Broadcast Premier (Dec. 2021) resulted in an Emmy Nomination. They Survived Together is a true story of endurance, unity and hope…

“Horrifying eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust eventually lead to an inspiring story of one family banding together to survive the evils of Nazism. [An] extraordinary story of strength and courage.” – Irv Slifkin, Film Critic

“They Survived Together” is the incredible, true story of the Neiger family as they desperately tried to stay alive… and together… as a family with four small children, escaping certain death at the hands of the Nazis.

When Nazi soldiers forced them from their home in Krakow and into the harsh life of the Ghetto, the elders of the family made a vow… they would somehow escape together and survive as a family.

How the family escapes is extraordinary. Their trek to freedom involved forged documents, help along the way from non-Jews who risked their lives to protect them, and a difficult journey to Hungary where they they ended up imprisoned. Ultimately, the Niegers beat the odds and became the one of the few families to survive the Holocaust intact.

THEY CALL ME ZARKO

As broadcast on Free Speech TV…

They Call Me Zarko is the true story of Ghazaros Demirdjian.

The son of displaced Armenian immigrants who had escaped the genocide (1915-1923), Ghazaros knew there was a better life out there for him. He loved John Wayne movies and dreamed of moving to America. With a developed sixth sense (which he credits to have learned from Romanian Gypsies), he knew it could be done, and finally embarked on a journey fraught with such peril that only the most determined could have survived.

From imprisonment in both Iraq and Iran, to the honor killing of a Turkish infidel, to arson in a fight with the mafia, this is the true story of how an Armenian born into abject poverty somehow made it to Hollywood and created a fortune in the American trash business.  He achieved the American Dream, his dream, of a successful business, a full table, and a loving family who now bask in the glow of his love and legacy.

This is his story as told by his wife, children,  grandchildren and family. And, of course, by Zarko himself!

“Everyone enjoys an underdog story, and this documentary is just that.” – SJ Portelli, Film Critic.

2021, 70 minutes, color and black & white / 16×9 HD, English Language, A film by Ron Small (I Danced for the Angel of Death, Circle Unbroken).
