Light out of Darkness is an interactive documentary which tells intimate stories of Holocaust survivors from the Los Angeles area. Through the app, you can watch as the survivors share the beauty and light of their life stories, all of which began in darkness and fear. With the app, you can learn about the survivors' lives dur-ing the years of the Second World War and the Holocaust, how they came to start new lives in America, and how they met the loves of their lives.

We are very grateful to have the opportunity to share the survivors' stories with you though this app. We hope that you take away inspiring lessons to put into practice in your own life.
