Outcast

Outcast

This film focuses on the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany during the period 1933-38. From the moment the Nazis came to power in 1933, the Jews of Germany were targeted for persecution. In spite of their patriotism and contribution to their country, Jews were dismissed from their jobs, deprived of civil rights and banned from Germany’s cultural life. They were no longer citizens, they were outcasts. The persecution of German Jews reached a peak in 1938 with mass arrests, burning of synagogues and pillaging of their shops – a dark forewarning of the ''Final Solution'' and the Holocaust. This film includes survivor testimonies and archival footage.

Stolen Childhood

Stolen Childhood

This moving film focuses on childhood under Nazi occupation. Jewish children who lived through the Holocaust lost their childhoods. Deprived of their homes, schools, friends, toys and clothes, they were herded into ghettos with their parents to live a meager existence. The deprivations forced children to assume the roles of adults, smuggling food into the ghetto or laboring in workshops to support their families and neighbors. In the film, three survivors, who were children during the war, recount their experiences in the ghettos.
