‘Never Again is Now’ is powerful and a must-see filmCategory: Television
After the holocaust the cry was “Never again!” That was the thought among the people of the world. But times have changed, and changed dramatically. Never Again is Now is a documentary that will not only enlighten viewers but also awaken them to the status of humanity in current times. Evelyn Markus brings an emotional story to light as she reflects on the past and shows how civilization is repeating the horrors again. With this awakening, viewers will be able to join together and stop the atrocities that are sweeping over the planet.
Markus is a Dutch Jew who discusses the plight of Jews during the holocaust and how life after was brighter for Jews. But times have changed and with the rise of Muslim extremists and Alt-Right, the lives of Jewish people around the globe are in danger. Yes, danger.
Markus had to leave her homeland and found comfort in the United States. This is the country that promises freedom of religion. She discusses and shows how Europe is being enveloped by antisemitism and how in many countries the schools are not allowed to even mention the holocaust. Jews are being tormented on the streets and their safety is in jeopardy.
But that is not a trend that is only happening in Europe. On the contrary, the United States is slowly following as antisemitism is beginning to spread its hate in the U.S.
With interviews with devout Muslim physician Qanta Ahmed, who is one Muslim helping to sound the alarm, religious leaders, government leaders, and others, this film demonstrates that people are definitely concerned about the spread of antisemitism and the hatred that is part of life these days, as in the time of Hitler.
It is astonishing to see the harassment and insults Jews encounter just by walking down the streets in Europe. Will that soon be the case in the United States?
Every person in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Senate, state and local government offices needs to see this film. It is an important and eye-opening lesson for anyone who has not experienced this hatred.
Never Again is Now is a lesson and a wake-up call. It goes right to the heart of humanity. If viewers do not get a twinge in their stomach or a tear in their eye or even a feeling of anger, they do not care about their fellow humans!
Never Again is Now is being released October 23, 2019 on VOD via Amazon US and Amazon UK. This is a powerful and emotional film that should wake up the population and inspire everyone to stop this horrendous situation that is sweeping once again around the world.
