Rabbi Yitzhak Elchanan Gibraltar was born in 1929 in Kovno, Lithuania, into an ultraorthodox

Jewish family. When he was 12 years old the Germans conquered Kovno, and

along with his parents, three brothers and other family members, he was sent to the ghetto

that was set up in the city. As a young boy Rabbi Gibraltar worked as a courier for the labor

office of the Judenrat and was a member of the study group, Tiferet Bachurim.

The family, which was miraculously saved on several occasions from the aktions

leading to the killings fields, was sent in the summer of 1944 from the Kovno ghetto

to the Stutthof concentration camp in Germany where the familys mother perished. A

month later Rabbi Gibraltar was transferred with his father and brothers to the Dachau

concentration camp from where they left on a death march until their liberation in May


Rabbi Gibraltar sailed from Italy on an immigrant ship in September 1946. The ship

was taken over by the British, and they were sent to Cyprus. Seven months later, in March

1947, Rabbi Gibraltar arrived in Israel, and studied for seven years at the Hebron Yeshiva

in Jerusalem.

Rabbi Gibraltar married Rachel, from the Stern family, and together they raised a

virtuous and blessed family.

The movie was produced by the International School for Holocaust Studies of Yad

Vashem with the cooperation of The Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs,

and with the generous support of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against

Germany and The Adelson Family Foundation.
