Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

So, late last evening, after digging up the mail, we found the latest Netflix arrival. forestcats was anxious to watch it, so out it came.

It was a documentary of a Jewish family going back to Poland to discover some of their roots, including a graveyard, the ruins of a synagogue, and the family that had hidden three brothers from the Germans during WWII. It was a brilliant piece of work, reminding folks that there are brave and righteous people to be found in every culture and ethnicity. The film is called Hiding and Seeking, and I'd urge anyone to watch it; it's stunning.
