What good can come from the ashes of genocide?  Then meet Leo Zisman, an 83-year-old whose past was so terrifying, he never spoke of it until now.    Leo had the rare courage to return to Poland where he witnessed unspeakable atrocities.  With the hope that his horrific experience could somehow change the next generation for the better, Leo leads a diverse group of young men and women, Jews and non-Jews, through the details of humanity's darkest period, including his own miraculous escape Auschwitz minutes before execution. Inter cut with Leo's testimony we hear from trip participants who reveal their own search for answers and identity.  We talk to young Poles about their opinions, some sadly unchanged from their grandparents' deep-rooted anti-Semitic feelings.  And as the participants discuss differing viewpoints we find that the Holocaust is not just an apparition haunting the past.    And so we gain the courage to change the world, inspired by the strength of Leo, the Lion of Judah.
