    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#403H] That's My Face Documentarian Thomas Allen Harris journeys to Africa and Brazil on a quest to find his spiritual ancestors. Reared in both the Bronx and Tanzania, Harris documents his own struggles with cultural identity while investigating the broader issues of race in the United States, Africa and South America. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Echoes of the Holocaust The Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach stands as a stark reminder and stunning symbol of anguish and tragedy. The memorial - comprised of evocative stone and bronze sculptures, a meditation garden, a reflecting pool, an eternal flame and a granite wall - honors the Holocaust's six million Jewish victims. Its centerpiece, "The Sculpture of Love and Anguish," features a giant outstretched arm tattooed with a number from Auschwitz rising from the earth, depicting the last desperate reach of a dying person. Today, some Holocaust survivors serve as docents (guides) for the memorial, sharing their stories of survival to schoolchildren, tourists and visitors from across the globe. This program captures four of these intimate tours. Docents Joe Dziubak, David Schaecter, Ann Rosenheck and Morris Rosenblat relive their personal tragedies - of loved ones lost and their own private terror, pain and humiliations - and recount the occasional miracle and their eventual liberation. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust This documentary recounts a fascinating, yet seldom-told, chapter in World War II history. It chronicles a real-life Casablanca, in which a high-profile group of poker buddies - including Colonel Dwight Eisenhower - hatched an intricate international plan of rescue and re-settlement, saving 1300 Jews from certain death in Nazi concentration camps. The program tells this gripping story through interviews with historians, friends and relatives of the key participants, and first-person accounts from refugees who detail their harrowing escape from Europe and immigration to the Philippines. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1631] INDIA SEX SELECTION - Recent attacks on women in India have spotlighted gender inequality there. In India, boy children have been preferred over girl children for centuries, in part because only boys can carry on the family's lineage, and also because the family must provide a dowry when their daughter gets married-even though dowries have been outlawed for half a century. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, the abortion of female fetuses has meant 5 boy babies are born to only 4 girl babies, but rising prosperity in India has led some families to view girls and boys as being of equal value.
    KEEPING THE SABBATH - The fast pace of life and the many distractions created by technology have led a Presbyterian pastor in Virginia to experiment with taking one day a week with her family - without computers, work or even errands - a day for "holy time." As Judy Valente reports, the idea is, for at least one day a week, to stop producing more and more, and learn to be content and appreciate the gift of that day - the Sabbath.
    JIM WALLIS - Bob Abernethy and Kim Lawton interview the social activist and CEO of Sojourners magazine about his new book On God's Side. Wallis advocates solving the country's major problems through a national Christian conversion that emphasizes serving "the common good."

    Going Blind This unique documentary hopes to increase public awareness of sight loss and low vision issues profoundly affecting the lives of more and more people around the world. Peabody Award winning director Joseph Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision.
    After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe decides to take action: to investigate how people all over the country respond to vision loss. His search begins small, with people Joe meets on the streets of his hometown New York City and gradually leads him to places and people around the country, of all different ages and backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections and accidents. This program interweaves Joe's story with that of his fellow subjects and invites us into the intimate spaces of the visually impaired and blind.

    Return When 13-year-old Fred Sondermann escaped from Nazi Germany in 1939, on the eve of World War II, he never imagined he would return. His homeland held only horrific and traumatizing memories of discrimination, persecution and death. However, an opportunity in 1969 to spend a sabbatical in Germany represented a chance for Dr. Sondermann to make sense of, and peace with, his experiences. This documentary recounts Sondermann's remarkable journey to understanding, as he begins to appreciate the complexities and multiple realities of the time. Adapted from Sondermann's memoirs, it explores the emotions and the conclusions of an American Jew returning to his German homeland after 30 years. In addition to the late Sondermann's compelling first-person narrative, it also features interviews with his son, his widow and his childhood friend. Contemporary video and photography of Dachau Concentration Camp and Sondermann's hometown of Horn are interchanged with archival images and documents, period news footage and the few surviving family photographs. duration 28:48   STEREO TVPG
