MADE BY ZYD - English sub
Zyd is the name that was given to the Jews in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s. This name delineates the common perception of Jews as passive, weak and submissive. The documentary film 'Made by Zyd' fights to change this viewpoint by sharing the incredible story of Skarżysko-Kamienna, the most terrible labor camp in Europe.
It investigates the interesting choice of Rafael, an Israeli defense technology company, to produce the Spike missiles in the same labor camp where thousands of Jewish workers were 'living targets' of Nazi ammunition examiners during the Holocaust. It portrays Rafael's talented engineers as the symbol of the power and sophistication of the Jewish spirit, thus illuminating the Jews as ingenious and active rather than submissive.
An original documentary film and a lecture with the film producer trace the extraordinary tale of Skarżysko-Kamienna, distilling the message that the Jewish (wo)man is no longer defenseless, but a strong and powerful figure. It refers to the Jewish contributions to science, high-tech, literature, philosophy and politics.
