Producer of Avatar at Yad Vashem

Today, Jon Landau, producer of Avatar and Titanic, among other films, visited Yad Vashem with his wife. They visited the Holocaust History Museum, and the Visual Center at Yad Vashem. In the Visual Center, they were touched to discover two films produced by his late father Ely Landau, The Man in the Glass Booth and The Pawnbroker among the Visual Center's collection, and viewed part of The Man in the Glass Booth at one of the Center's viewing stations.

The Visual Center at Yad Vashem is dedicated to creating the world's most comprehensive resource center of cinematic work related to the Holocaust. Currently some 6,100 films have been catalogued, and more than 3,800 films and 60,000 testimonies are available for viewing on demand.
