Joshua and Nadia fulfilled a commitment they made to another human being in great need. The fact that they stuck with it, despite the personal sacrifices and risks, is a testament to their uncommon nature. One that shows us true heroism. I was fortunate to witness this first hand as part of the Crime After Crime crew.

To Andrea Hornick: please see the film - Joshua and Nadia worked tirelessly on this case along with many others, including a top-notch investigator who helped uncover the prosecutorial mis-doings in the DA's office - the law firm that Joshua and Nadia worked for paid their salaries while they worked pro-bono on the case. Joshua himself tells about his personal involvement in the film.

Everyone should see this film, and also the film Sin By Silence, which can be obtained from its own website.

It's my wish that Crime After Crime be nominated for, and win, the best documentary at the Oscars next year.

What kept Joshua Safran on the case for so long, why did he stick with it - was there a personal reason? It seems like such a huge sacrifice.
