On June 30, 2022 the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced the nominations for the 65th Annual New York Emmy Awards.

The WNET Group received 35 nominations for the film by John Rokosny titled “They Survived Together.” The Emmy Awards honorees were announced on October 8th, 2022 in a livestream broadcast on the NY Emmys website and at a live in-person gala.  Accepting the Emmy Award at the gala, John Rokosny thanked his producing partner, Andriette Redmann (featured photo) and their editor Patty Schumann; the extended Neiger family especially Hanka, Tosia, Benjamin, Cesia, Basia – everyone involved in the making of ‘They Survived Together’ including Composer Frank London, Sound Production by Roman Klun (Innsbruck Studio) and Thomas Ryan, Color and FX Dave Steck, Co-producers Dave Sherwyn, Terry W. Stone and Liza DiNizio – also the WNET Group and Susie Hernandez, the Family Foundations and individual donors. Musicians included Tor Morten Kjosnes, Meg Okura, Jane Scarpantoni, Avon Faire, Steven Goldstein, David Gold, Anna Marie Spallina, Dana Rokosny, Fred Parcells, Kath Green, Geoff Green, Brian Dursee, Tasha Jakush, Rajik Bouzgarrou, Carolyn Ratcliffe, ALF and Brian Monzella. This film was dedicated to the Neiger Family.

The film tells the true story of the Neiger family as they try to stay together as a family while escaping the Nazi invasion of Poland. After the Nazi soldiers forced the family from their home and into the Ghetto, they made a vow to escape and survive as a family. It’s an unbelievable story with amazing historical footage. We need to preserve and share the stories of survivors – their generation is almost completely gone.
