Longtime Victoria resident Julius Maslovat grew up knowing he was a child survivor of the Holocaust, but he had few answers for how and why he lived. In this locally produced film, which is premiering at the VIJFF, Maslovat describes the chance discoveries and dogged research that allowed him to piece together his remarkable history. Maslovat speaks often to local groups about how he answered the existential question, “Why Am I Here?”
