ISRAELI FILMMAKER Guy Nattiv spoke of his Holocaust survivor grandparen­ts as he won an Oscar for Skin,a short film about racial bigotry.

“Layla tov, Israel,” he began. “My grandparen­ts are Holocaust survivors. The bigotry that they experience­d in the Holocaust, we see that everywhere today, in America, in Europe.

“This film is about education, about teaching your kids a better way.”

Mr Nattiv won the award with his wife, Jaime Ray Newman, who produced Skin.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin congratula­ted the pair on Monday, describing Skin as “a gift to our children and grandchild­ren”.
