An Israeli film made in Yiddish has won the Silver Medal at a documentary film festival held last week in Nyon, Switzerland.

The Israeli entry, “Choice and Destiny,” made by Tsipi Reibenbach of Tel Aviv, focuses on the lives of a couple who are Polish-born Holocaust survivors.

The film follows the daily lives of the filmmaker’s elderly parents.
