This very short "digital story" or video essay covers a trip that me, my wife and 13-month-old son took to Poland. That was in July 2008.
There, we spent a week with Genia Olczak, who was my dad's nanny before WWII and hid him and several other Jewish family members during the Holocaust. The film was made in a workshop sponsored by the Center for Digital Storytelling in April 2011.
Genia passed away in September 2008, a month after our trip. She was 95.
