Who Shall Live And Who Shall Die
Directed by Laurence Jarvik. Asking "Could the Jews of Europe have been saved?," this unflinching documentary examines the unwillingness of Americans (including much of the American Jewish establishment) to rescue persecuted European Jews during World War II. The production argues that the American Jewish community bears a heavy burden of guilt for failing to pressure the Roosevelt administration strongly enough to help the Jews of Europe. Note: graphic footage. (HS+). B/W. (90 min.)
