Bodek, Andrej, Dariusz Jablonski and Arnold Mostowicz. Photographer. Los Angeles: Seventh Art Releasing, 1998.
Produced and directed by Dariusz Jablonski; written by Andrej Bodek, Dariusz Jablonski and Arnold Mostowicz; in Polish, German and Yiddish, with English subtitles; director of photography, Tomasz Michalowski; edited by Milenia Fiedler; music by Michal Lomc. Running time, 80 minutes. Not rated. With Arnold Mostowicz. This documentary is based on 400 Agfa color slides of the Lodz ghetto by Austrian born Nazi Walter Genewein, chief accountant and top Nazi administrator of the ghetto. After Genewein's death, the slides were sold to a used bookstore, where they were recovered in 1987. They are now part of the collection of the Jewish Museum in Frankfort, Germany. The film, which won the Prix Europa 1998, uses Genewein's notes to mark the disparity between what Genewein observed and what the pictures reveal.

Notes:  Intended audience: Ages 12 through adult. Shows the efforts of German-appointed leader Chaim Rumkowski to save the Jewish community during the Nazi occupation of Lodz, Poland, in World War II.

Mamele (Little Mother), Poland, 1938.
Directors: Joseph Green and Konrad Tom
Music: Abraham Ellstein, Ivo Wesby
Cast: Molly Picon, Edmund Zayenda, Max Bozyk, Gerturde Bullman, Simche Fostel, Ola Shlifko, Menashe Oppenheim, Karol Latowicz, Max Perelman, Ruth Turkow, Lew Szryftzecer, Max Bryn
Description: 100 minutes B&W Yiddish with new additional English subtitles
Notes: Mamele is a musical comedy that embraces the entire gamut of interwar Jewish life in Lodz in all its diversity, with tenements and unemployed Jews, nightclubs and gangsters, and religious Jews celebrating Succoth. But the film belongs to Molly Picon who romps undaunted through her dutiful daughter role, saving siblings, keeping the family intact, singing and acting her way through the stages of a woman's life from childhood to old age. Picon stars as Khavtshi, a young woman who promises her dying mother that she will take care of her family. She's so busy cooking, cleaning and matchmaking for her brothers and sisters that she barely has any time for herself, until she discovers the violinist across the courtyard! The musical score also includes Picon's trademark theme song, "Abi Gezunt."
Podemski, Esther. House of the World. New York: First Run/Icarus Films, 1999
Description: videcassette (54 min.): color
Notes: Tracing the history of an old family photograph, the filmmaker, Esther Podemski, travels to Poland with a group of her parents' contemporaries. Fifty years after surviving the Holocaust, the elders return to their hometown, Poddebice, to conduct a memorial service in the Jewish graveyard. They find an empty field, marked by a lone tablet, the only testament to the history of this place to survive the wartime desecration. In the nearby city of Lodz, we meet Layb Pradskier, custodian of the immense, crumbling Jewish cemetery. Here we discover that all that remains of the once several hundred thousand strong Jewish population of Lodz is a handful of aging Holocaust survivors. A montage of historical images, snapshots, and archival music, together with new location footage, House of the World moves between personal accounts of Jewish Poland and historic events.

They encounter problems with the overworked, underpaid workers. Saga based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Wladyslaw Reymont, vividly depicts a society on the edge of change.
