In the 1990s, the town of Brookline recorded the stories of dozens of Holocaust survivors.

For decades, tapes of those interviews were locked up and forgotten in a storage closet. Now, we can hear them.

Filmmaker Harvey Bravman rescued more than 80 hours of those stories, and made them into a documentary called "Soul Witness: The Brookline Holocaust Witness Project."

Warning: these stories are very powerful, and they can also be very painful to hear.
