About Naum Medovoy

Naum Medovoy is an artist and documentary filmmaker. He’s perhaps best known for his 1973 film The Missing (The Last March), which combines World War II archival photographs and film from the Central Documentary Archive, located near Moscow, with his own 35mm footage to reveal the fate of Soviet soldiers in World War II, captured as prisoners of war. Soviet surrender codes at the time stipulated it was better to die than be held in enemy captivity, thus large swaths of servicemen in camps were deemed missing in action and left to die. When they did return to the USSR, they were considered traitors and sent to Gulag work camps. These men are considered something of a lost generation.
