FIVE PART SERIES

We just finished the five part educational series based on the feature. We think it is a perfect entry to teaching the history of the Holocaust, antisemitism and family history research skills. Contact marcia.rock@nyu.edu for more information.

Response from screening:

This was the holocaust from a different perspective.  I saw it as a family, not numbers and the violence of the most wretched human treatment dominating the experience. I was invited to know the loss and pain but also the richness of their experience as a family.  A treasure shared in faces. And then there was the humor that Karen bought to the story. I left in appreciation, not sorrow.

We’re pleased to announce our premiere is at the Miami Jewish Film Festival.

Streaming January 12-24, 2024

We are now working on a five-part short doc series for educators and genealogy workshops at synagogues, museums and Holocaust resource centers.

The short series will be perfect for required high school curricula. Not only does it teach history through a specific examples, it models research skills that can be applied to other topics. If you’re interested, please contact us: karenafrenkel@gmail.com
