video title:
Holocaust Girls
2008, 13min

This personal meditation on postwar female Jewishness is lushly filmed, and takes on risky territory in its imagination of Jewish female sexuality. How do young Jewish girls and women make sense of the historical and Hollywood texts about women and the Holocaust, such as The Diary of Anne Frank and Sophie’s Choice? A provocative film about the complicated and sometimes irresponsible urge to daydream or fantasize about the Holocaust.
