HOLOCAUST – IS THAT WALLPAPER PASTE?
Twin sisters, 21, appear on a Moscow TV show and give a stunningly ignorant explanation of the Holocaust. But a Russian journalist cum filmmaker offers them a chance to learn, accompanying them to Poland for a tour of Auschwitz. Will this trip mean anything to these non-Jewish siblings? Or will there be a transformative experience, demonstrating that education can touch those uniformed about Nazism and the Jews?
JUDITH & THE MAN FROM SCHINDLERS LIST
This poignant documentary shows the close, unexpected friendship of a 12-year-old German violinist, who wishes to know the story behind the music in SCHINDLER’S LIST, and an 81-year-old Holocaust survivor, who is alive because of being on SCHINDLER’S LIST. He is alone and chronically forlorn when they meet. But the young girl’s sincere respect for his suffering, and her heavenly violin playing, have a salutory effect.
