Jerichow ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 285 libraries worldwide
The eternal triangle: a rich guy; his bored, beautiful, blond wife; and a rugged stranger, down on his luck and ready for action. What more do you need? In this case, to know that the rich guy is a Turk who is still, despite having spent virtually his entire life in Germany, a permanent outsider. That the hot blond wife has a colorful past and owes large debts (which hubby now holds over her head). That the rugged stranger is a former soldier who received a dishonorable discharge after serving in Afghanistan, living in his dead mother's house. Jerichow is a nondescript spot in the former East Germany, where capitalism still has a somewhat primitive, half-criminal feel. The film conveys a sense of desperation and defeat, and highlights that what can happen at the crossroads of lust, loneliness, and materialism.

The complete blue eyed with Jane Elliott ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
Jane Elliott believes that white people won't act against racism until they have experienced it emotionally themselves, if only for a few hours in a controlled environment. The "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise was originally developed by Jane Elliott for her all white third grade class in Riceville, Iowa at the time of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination to give them some idea of racial prejudice. She divided her class on the basis of eye color and subjected the blue-eyed members to a regime of intense discrimination. They soon cracked under the pressure, losing self-esteem and competence. Filmed for German television, this edition of "Blue Eyed" showcases Jane Elliott as diversity trainer, using the powerful and controversial "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise with real people, presented in three separate versions so it can be conveniently used in any training or educational setting.
