Anna’s War tells of the atrocities of the Holocaust through the experiences of a six year old called Anna. Amid the mass coordinated execution of Jewish people, her parents were killed. Anna miraculously survived because her mother covered the little girl’s body with her own. Anna doesn’t just survive but somehow holds onto her humanity. Many factors helped her picking up the pieces: memories from her past life, swept away by war, the cultural foundations laid by her parents and one friend who saved her from loneliness.
Anna's War is a film about Holocaust told through the tragic story of a Jewish girl. This is a reminder of the terrible events of the past and a call to draw attention to one of the most dramatic problems of today - children whose lives are destroyed by war. The main role was played by 6-year-old actress Marta Kozlova, for whom it was her debut. Anna’s War is an independent project; it was shot without government support.
