    This documentary explores the role of second-generation Holocaust survivors and future generations in maintaining and prolonging Holocaust awareness after the loss of eyewitness testimony. The film not only focuses on the second-generation survivors' role in spreading awareness, but also on the role of all people in seeking out information from families which serve as repositories for such memories in order to ensure that these stories are not lost. With the help of second-generation survivor, Perry Moss, and his two children, Alison and Steven, the film demonstrates the vital role of communication between generatioins.

                  from Emmanuel Amara / Added

                  Finnish Doctor Felix Kersten, a student of Tibetan medicine, became a favorite healer among the rich and famous in Germany during the 1930s. Married to a German woman, he settled in an estate outside of Berlin. Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS under Hitler, sought out Dr. Kersten to treat him for ongoing painful stomach cramps. Soon, Germany’s "minister of death” became dependent upon Kersten, and the doctor slowly used that dependency to bargain for the release of thousands of Jews from Nazi prison camps. FELIX KERSTEN: SATAN’S DOCTOR chronicles the unusual relationship between Kersten and Himmler. The doctor was essentially a prisoner himself, but he managed to use his status as the one person who could alleviate Himmler’s physical pain to manipulate his patient. Week by week, month by month, he snatched away victims from the cold and fanatical executioner.

                    This is an excerpt from the play "Korczak's Children" performed by WBHS's Vagabond Players. Henryk Goldszmit, who later became known under his pen name, Janusz Korczak, was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1879. He later became a children’s author, Polish-Jewish educator, and pediatrician. In 1911, he became the director of Dom Sierot, an orphanage in Warsaw. On August 5, 1942, the orphanage, along with the rest of the ghetto, was marched to a train platform where they were shoved tightly into a windowless, sealed cattle car. From there, they were taken to the Treblinka death camp and were never heard of again. Despite the fact that Korczak was offered escape multiple times, he always refused. He chose to stay with his children and his inspiring story will live on forever. Korczak died with his children in a gas chamber in Treblinka, but with his brave efforts, he and the victims of the Holocaust will never be forgotten.
