    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

  • MORNING
  • 7:00 am
    Refuge: Stories of the Selfhelp Home In the late 1930s - with the violence and destruction of Kristallnacht foreshadowing the devastation of European Jewry - a determined group of German-Jewish refugees left behind well-established lives and most of their possessions and immigrated to Chicago. There, they set out to create a supportive community for themselves and other German, Austrian and Czech Jews fleeing Nazi persecution. Eventually, they founded Selfhelp, an organization providing temporary housing, food, English classes, job placement and, in 1950, a residential home for elderly emigres and Holocaust survivors. REFUGE: STORIES OF THE SELFHELP HOME features the deeply personal stories of these residents, who spent the war years surviving by any means necessary. Vividly, they reflect on these experiences - of separations, deportations, selections and life-and-death decisions. REFUGE moves back and forth seamlessly between these often heartbreaking stories and examines how the trajectories of residents and founders diverged during the war and came together again around Selfhelp. duration 58:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
