Holocaust survivor Fanya Gottesfeld Heller tells her story to inner-city high school students, who visibly connect with her tale of hunger, suffering, and broken home life.

Historic footage and interviews with Michael Berenbaum and other Holocaust scholars provide context as Fanya tells what it was like to be 16 and responsible for keeping her family alive. A substantial teacher’s guide by the Museum of Jewish Heritage suggests activities developing the story’s connection to four themes: survival against all odds, making difficult choices, living with consequences, and individual responsibility. (Fanya’s paperback memoir Love in a World of Sorrow is available separately.) Narrated by Richard Gere.
