Award-winning Penn State faculty filmmaker Boaz Dvir presents his new film slated to air on PBS in 2018. Cojot: A Holocaust Survivor Takes History Into His Own Hands, an hour long-documentary, tells the virtually unknown story of a French Holocaust survivor who risks his life to hunt down Gestapo commander Klaus Barbie and, only a few months later, plays a pivotal role in one of history’s most daring hostage-rescue operations.
