In the new documentary, “Numbered,” Getty photographer Uriel Sinai, together with Dana Doron, explores a subtle legacy of Auschwitz: the tattooed serial numbers borne on the arms and chests of its survivors. The movie will have its New York premiere on January 20th as part of the New York Jewish Film Festival at Lincoln Center. You can watch a trailer for the movie here: http://vimeo.com/57316737
Previously, Uriel had photographed dozens of Auschwitz survivors and their tattoos for a portrait series of the same name. An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps, including Leo Luster, above, whom Uriel photographed in 2009.
