The Feature-Length Film: The Essential Link - The Story of Wilfrid Israel
"As a result of the new fascinating  findings and evidence that surfaced, we are proud to announce the launching of the feature-length documentary production of this extraordinay tale." THAT - was in 2012. 
Based on the extraordinary feedbacks with an outpour of new material arriving daily and the financial commitment of new sponsors, our team launched into the ambitious project of a feature-length film, working intensely and relentlessly on taking this work to a higher level of completion. During the last few months alone, the production team has flown to London to interview numerous personalities, including world-reknown historian and biographer Naomi Shepherd. We would like to thank all of those who have helped us and who have already contributed to this new project. Without your generous support this work would not have been possible.
However, at this time we call upon everyone who can, to help us achieve our budget's goals, so we can complete this important task. Today, in 2015 new surprises keep popping-up. These days we film several interesting interviews, and continue to look for additional sources and information. If you have any unpublished information about Wilfrid Israel and his life, or photographs / footage from Berlin 1936-1939, please contact us.

1984 Award Winning Biography by Naomi Shepherd
Martin Gilbert praises the book:
'In a work that reads at times like a detective story, Naomi Shepherd has uncovered a fascinating historical Aladdin's cave of drama and intrigue, casting considerable light on the efforts that were made to rescue Jews from Nazi persecution, from the very first days of Hitler's triumph.  Through Israel's story one sees all too clearly the true reaction of the Western Allies to the appalling news as it reached them, often in fierce contrast to the courageous efforts of a remarkable individual whose story is told here for the first time.'

Dear Mr. Israel:

I was extremely glad with your friendly letter and especially with the fact that you are finally safe.
What you have done was truly heroic, but I couldn't get rid of the feeling that you are too good for this world, but even more so for the environment, in which you insisted on staying for so long.
With the hope of seeing you again once more in this life, heartily regards to you and yours,
Yours,
A. Einstein
