Award Winning Documentary - "B-1719"
You are invited to see a one hour documentary that will open your eyes to tolerance, forgiveness and love. A most incredible story of human triumph told by a survivor of World War II’s Holocaust, Charles Pierce, a man that spent six truly horrifying and torturous years (1939-1945) as a Nazi prisoner. What makes this story so unique, however, is that after those hellish experiences were over; even after the murder of his own parents, you will witness Charles' devotion and determination to rebuild his life free from regret, anger or revenge. He traveled to schools and other venues sharing his story of the Holocaust, tolerance and love. This is what makes our documentary most memorable to the viewer; it’s an experience touching the heart and mind. Charles passed away on October 10, 2012 but his story will live forever.
Two of the most memorable days in my life are when we handed my Dad, Charles Pierce, his first copy of his autobiography, "THE ART OF SURVIVAL" and second was when he got to see his completed documentary, "B-1719," just one month before he passed away. The documentary is permanently in the library of the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. I am so proud and grateful to all that worked on the documentary. Thank you Shane Davis, Mike de Martino, Tracy Lehr, Jack Marlando and my mom, Libby Pierce.
Our award winning documentary B-1719, can now be watched on a local Camarillo television station, City Scene TV, on Time Warner channel 10 and Verizon Fios channel 29. It will be shown on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 12:00pm, 4:00pm, 7:00pm and 10:00pm. Thank you John Fraser for showing our documentary.

Memorial to Charles Pierce
October 19, 1920 - October 10, 2012
CHARLES PIERCE - OBITUARY
10/19/1920 – 10/10/2012.
He was among the last survivors of the Second World War’s
Holocaust spending the duration of the war (6 horrifying years) in death and
concentration camps where suffering and death were daily occurrences. His
experiences included a face to face meeting with Josef Mengele known as “the
Angel of Death” who simply decided who went to the gas chambers and who didn’t,
who went to the hospital to serve him as human guinea pigs and who would serve
as slave labor. Charles Pierce was chosen to labor, saving his life.
Charles would not talk about his experiences for years, even turning down Steven Spielberg that had an interest in his story. The memories were too painful! Indeed he spared his own children from knowing what he had gone through, but then at the age of 85, he finally decided to tell his story wanting people never to forget a time of man’s most horrifying inhumanity to man. He began lecturing at local schools and other venues where teachers, students and others listened in awe to Charles’ experiences. He began receiving wonderful letters of affection from his audiences that soon enough expanded to Point Mugu and Port Hueneme Naval Base where he was given a standing ovation, a special plaque and special coin.
To help tell his story Mr. Pierce also published a book telling his most intriguing story with title “The Art of Survival” which is available on this website, at Mrs. Figs Bookworm, Barnes & Noble and Amazon. He also completed his documentary about one month ago.
He is remembered for his kind, loving and forgiving nature. He was laid to rest at Mount Sinai Cemetery on Friday October 12th and is survived by his wife Libby, his children Emily, Mark and his wife Stacey, Sherry and her husband Dave, his grandchildren Adam, Thomas, Lindsey and Breanna and his brother Abe.
The following is a slide show of Charles Pierce's family life from childhood until he passed away. Born Oct. 19, 1920 and died Oct. 10, 2012.
