Oscar Winning Producer And Auschwitz Survivor, Branko Lustig, Passes Away At 87
On Thursday, the world lost Croatian film producer Branko Lustig, a man who has seen both sides of history; war and peace. Confirming his death, the Festival of Tolerance told Associated Press that Lustig died in Croatia at 87.
Branko is one of the few people that survived the infamous Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps, where he lost many loved ones, including his father and grandmother. As fate would have it, Branko survived and many years later, he became a producer to tell stories of survival and hope.
