     The Children

Kinder-Exodus 1939 
Shortly after Kristallnacht in November of 1938, the British House of Commons authorized the entry of children to Great Britain as transmigrants. Almost 10,000 Jewish children from Austria, Germany and Czechoslovakia were saved from almost certain death in what became known as the kindertransport; most never saw their parents again. By interspersing her subjects' narratives with photographs of them as children, filmmaker Hilary Gatoff enables us to follow their lives from traumatic childhood to successful adulthood.

Let Memory Speak 
One and a half million children! The number staggers the imagination. Child survivor and educator Batia Bettman's sensitive documentary focuses on the most tragic victims of the Holocaust, the children, whose only "crime" was to have been born Jewish. Through the use of photographs, diaries, poems, memoirs and testimonies, the filmmaker personalizes the lives of the children before World War II, during the Holocaust, at Liberation and today, in a way that enables us to begin to comprehend their lives. The child survivors have only recently begun to tell their stories. The film explores the concept of how memory and legacy are transmitted from generation to generation, as evidenced in the very moving final segment filmed recently during the March of the Living. The young generation has now returned to walk in the footsteps of those who perished. With music written, arranged and performed by Zalmen Mlotek.
