The Molėtai Film

  Tzvi-Hirsh (Gregory) Kritze

Tzvi-Hirsh (Gregory) Kritzer will be making a documentary film about the Jewish history and legacy of Malát (now Molėtai), a small shtetl in Lithuania. The film will endeavor to cover the history, life and culture of the Maláter, the Jews of Malát, and also the genocide of the entire community carried out by the Nazis and their local collaborators. His father’s family was killed there together with about 1000 Malát Jews.

In addition, we, scions of Malát from Israel, South Africa, Australia and elsewhere, with the assistance of the Jewish community in Lithuania and the Molėtai municipality we are planning to film the march in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Malát death march of 1941.
