"They had the worst spot in
the barrack, near the door,
and they were shouting at
people all the time to close
the door. But the shouting
got weaker every day. You
saw them dying."
A few days later, Brande§
went to female block 29 to see
Mrs. Frank and her two
daughters. "Margot had
fallen from the bed onto the
stone floor, dead," Brandes
says. "One day later, Anne
died." A month later, British
troops liberated Bergen-Bel-
So far, the film has been
shown only on Dutch tele-
vision and at specialized fes-
tivals in New York and Los
Angeles. Last month, the film
was honored in New York
with an international Emmy

Dutch Television.

award for best TV documen-
tary, in competition with en-
tries from 30 countries.
Despite the prize and ex-
cellent critical reviews, Lind-
wer works as hard at selling
the film as he did at making
the $125,000 production. He
says that Israeli TV will pro-
bably show the documentar3r
around Yom Hashoa (Holo-
caust Remembrance Day)
next May, and that he is
negotiating with both the
British Broadcasting Co.
(BBC) and Channel 4 in Eng-
land. As for the United
States, Lindwer says he hopes
to sell the film to one of the
networks. In the meantime, a
book by Lindwer based on the
documentary and carrying
the same title, will be avail-
able shortly.
Since leaving Dutch televi-
sion a few years ago to form
his own company, Audio-
Visual-Arts and Production,
Lindwer has focussed entire-
ly on Jewish themes.
He has done six documen-
taries on the Christian roots
of anti-Semitism in Europe, a
film on the Jews of Amster-
dam, and recently completed
"The Lonely Struggle," based
on interviews with Dr. Marek
Edelman, who was second-in-
command of the Warsaw
Ghetto uprising.
Lindwer talks guardedly of
his next planned projects, two
films on the history and cur-
rent state of Soviet Jewry,
which he hopes to produce in
collaboration with the BBC.
"I want to continue telling
what has been done to the
Jewish people," he says. "I
think that's especially impor-
tant in the light of what's now
happening in Israel."
