The Jewish people a story of survival ( visu )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 361 libraries worldwide
This is the story of Jewish survival. From slavery to the loss of their homeland; from exile to anti-Semitism; from pogroms to near annihilation in the Holocaust, they managed to endure while so many communities have vanished. Spanning millennia, this history of the Jewish people explores how a small group who started as desert nomads overcame countless obstacles to survive to the present day
A Yiddish world remembered ( visu )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 227 libraries worldwide
Brimming with firsthand accounts, archival films and photographs, and a powerful current of traditional klezmer and cantorial music, this program examines the Yiddish culture and society that grew out of the Jewish diaspora in Eastern Europe. Viewers are shown glimpses of daily life in the shtetl, a type of village found across the Pale of Settlement-one that may have lacked running water and electricity and suffered from poverty, overcrowding, and anti-Semitism, but one which was also a close-knit and joyous place. The film explores many aspects of that nearly vanished way of life-the fascinating Yiddish language; traditional clothing; education in the cheder, or school house; the rabbis and rebbes who often led Yiddish communities; and the powerful Jewish movements of Hasidism, Bundism, and Zionism
Armenians A Story of Survival ( visu )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
Shot in twelve countries and narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis, this program illustrates the epic journey of the Armenian people-from their origins centuries before Christ through their near-elimination early in the 20th century to the rebirth of their nation following the Soviet collapse. The film includes interviews with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel; author Christopher Walker (The Armenians: Survival of a Nation); the head of the Armenian Apostolic Church, Catholicos Karekin II; and the former President of Armenia, Robert Kocharian. Archival footage from the 1915 Armenian Genocide and the era of Soviet Armenia adds further depth to this sweeping narrative

Archival images and documents accompany interviews with Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel, Prof. Alan Dershowitz of Harvard University, Prof. Lawrence H. Schiffman of NYU, Prof. Christine Hayes of Yale, Rabbi Brad Hirschfield of the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, and others
