More than seven decades after the Nazis invaded Poland and World War II began, filming is reportedly underway for the first-ever short film and music video about the Holocaust.
With a cast of dozens and a production company based in New York, "Rainbow in the Night" is set in Krakow and the Majdanek concentration camp.

Israel National News adds:
Much of today’s youth, raised in the age of technology such as Facebook, Twitter and smart phones, has little patience for large volumes of history, yet the memories of those six million Jews who perished at the hands of Nazi murderers during World War II must be kept alive.
Having recognized the challenge of keeping the Holocaust alive in today’s day and age, composer, writer and producer Cecelia Margulies has teamed up with producer and director Danny Finkelman and created "Rainbow in the Night," a new music video which brings the Holocaust to life.
Producers say the reason for the video, which they hope will go viral, is to increase and preserve awareness about the Holocaust, as the number of survivors dwindles and the number of Holocaust deniers grows.
