Holocaust: In Dark Places
This videocassette features four shorts dealing with the Holocaust. "In Dark Places" (58 minutes), a 1978 film by Gina Blumfeld that records interviews with several survivors and their children, with a special segment with Susan Sontag. Interspersed between the interviews is a dramatic piece entitled "Survivors," performed by the New Artef Players. The three other shorts are "How Come Israel?," a mini drama using fighting children in a metaphoric game of "pogrom"; "The Good Omen," a Polish folktale of renewal with painting by Shay Rieger; and "The Hangman," a 1964 animated short dealing with the responsibility of the silent bystander.
