standing on board the ship
that brought him to America.
We managed to trace the fact
that he came from the small
village of Josefow in Poland:'
Randall and her father
traveled to Josefow and found
neighbors who remembered
the family, and knew how
some of them had been killed.
More important, they found
two women who had hidden
members of the family for
years until an informer
betrayed them. "As the video
draws to a close, my father
makes a statement that
epitomizes the central theme
of the program," Randall said.
"He says, 'If I were a Pole, a
Catholic Pole, and here comes
my Jewish neighbor who is
running for his life, and if I

or the daughters of
Holocaust survivors, it
is the sense of urgency
about communicating a
message concerned with the
Shoah. For others, it is the
need to tell about some aspect
of Jewish life that is impor-
tant to them. Whatever the
reason, a number of Jewish
women are making films of
Jewish interest.
"I'm not sure that there are
more women than men doing
films of Jewish interest, but
women are certainly there in
great force," said Jean Rosen-
saft, assistant director of
education at the Jewish
Museum in New York. Rosen-
saft coordinates the
museum's film festivals and
other public programs.
Myriam Abramowicz is
representative of the young
Jewish women filmmakers
who feel a need to capture a
vignette of the Holocaust for
themselves and the record. A
decade ago, in partnership
with Esther Hoffenberg, she
made the widely praised full-
length documentary, As If It
Were Yesterday. The film,
about the resuce of some
4,000 Jewish children by
Belgians during the Holo-
caust, was one Abramowicz
said she had to make. Her
mother was one of those
children, and Abramowicz felt
"an absolute necessity to go
to Belgium to see the people
who saved my mother and
other Jews, and to make a
film about them."
Others feel a similar need.
"I felt driven to document
their story," said Terri Ran-
dall, about her 30-minute
documentary videotape, To
Know Where They Are. That
video, too, tells of Christians
who sought to save Jews in
Nazi-occupied Europe. "I
spent four years and a great
deal of my own funds to do so,
until the Anti-Defamation
League (of `Bnai B'rith) —
specifically their Jewish
Foundation for Christian
Rescuers — took an interest
in the project," Randall said.
The story began with Ran-
dall's grandfather, who came
to the United States in 1913.
"He left behind brothers and
sisters," she explained. "My
father wanted to know what
had become of his aunts and
uncles. We started with only
a picture of my grandfather

take him in, I'm putting my
own life on the line. I would
hope — I can only say at this
point I would hope — I'd have
the courage to help. But
knowing human nature, it's
really hard to tell. It's
something you have to decide
on the spot then and there:
The videotape leaves the
viewer with this issue in
mind?'

Debbie Goodstein's mother
did not want to talk about her
past, two years of which were
spent hidden in an attic with
her family in rural Poland.
But the need to know what
really happened haunted
Goodstein; it became a
psychological necessity.
"The children of survivors
experience what their
parents went through. It's
almost like sharing a sub-
conscious," she said. "The
psychological term for it is
`post-trauma syndrome.' "
With the help of family
members, Goodstein went to
Urzejowice, Poland, to find
the attic and the people who
had saved her mother and 14
other members of her family.
Her documentary, Voices from
the Attic, was shown recently
at a commercial theater in
Manhattan and at the ninth
annual Jewish Film Festival
in San Francisco.
