Rod’s documentary, Uncle Chatzkel (1999), included an account of his great-grandparents' murder in Zagare, in 1941. In 2012 Rod returned for an event commemorating the town’s Jews. A memorial was erected in the town square, a first for Lithuania. Initiated by a young Lithuanian, the event was attended by international descendants of Zagare. Rod will recount the personal significance of this reconciliation journey in the context of ongoing controversy in Lithuania about the rewriting of history.
