Double Feature:

THROUGH THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE:
THE ART OF ESTHER NISENTHAL KRINITZ
USA, ENGLISH & A BISSEL YIDDISH
DIRECTOR: NINA SHAPIRO-PERL
DOCUMENTARY SHORT / 30 MINUTES

Biographical gem about a Holocaust folk artist. When the Jews of Mniszek, a tiny town in central Poland, were deported by the Nazis while clutching their Torah, 15-year old Esther was determined to save herself and a younger sister by passing as Christian in the Polish countryside. She survived, married, emigrated to the States, raised two daughters and grew a family business. But eventually, in her untrained, naïf style, she found a way to share memory and losses in 36, lushly-detailed tapestries. With archived interviews given by the remarkable Esther and affectionate remarks by her daughters.

double feature with

HITLER'S CHILDREN
ISRAEL, ENGLISH. GERMAN & HEBREW (ENGLISH SUBTITLES).
DIRECTOR: CHANOCH ZE'EVI
DOCUMENTARY / 80 MINUTES

Riveting. Morally challenging. What if your father or grandfather had been in Adolf Hitler's inner circle, among the most notorious Nazis? This intelligent documentary ventures into the psychic, no-man's land between revulsion and familial connection. The Israeli director artfully combines cinema verité (including singular and startling footage at modern day Auschwitz) with intimate and revelatory interviews given by descendants of top Nazis such as Amon Goeth (the sadistic camp commandant depicted in Schindler's List), Hermann Goering ("the first to order Jewish extermination"), and Heinrich Himmler (chief of the SS). Destined to become a classic. New York Times Critics' Pick.

INTRODUCTION: Dr. Erin McGlothlin, Associate Professor Washington University Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures
