Mitchell Lieber

Mitchell Lieber is the producer-director of the documentary "Rumbula's Echo". Additionally, he has directed three short films about the Holocaust in Latvia. In his early career he produced more than 125 interviews and documentaries for Chicago Radio station WNIB-FM (now WDRV). His genealogy search for information about his grandfather's parents is woven into Rumbula's Echo. His grandfather was a cantor/sofer from Latvia and his great-grandfather was a rabbi in Latvia. In 2002, the genealogy search led Mitch to found the educational web site www.Rumbula.org, about Jews and the Holocaust in Latvia. This, in turn, eventually led to the documentary film project Rumbula's Echo.
