A documentary film celebrating the life of the late Jewish prodigy, Petr Ginz, murdered during the Holocaust, will soon go global.

Using Petr's art and writings, The Last Flight of Petr Ginz will help teach teenagers worldwide about how destructive hatred and prejudice are.

Nazism led to the extermination of 6 million Jews in concentration camps between 1933 and 1945.

More than a million and a half were children. The film highlights a novel Petr wrote at 12, an allegory about the Nazi party.

At 16, he died in a gas chamber in Aushwitz, the largest of the German concentration camps.

The film’s producer, Sandra Dickson spoke to Dianne Penn about his life and his legacy.

Duration: 3'40''
