Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Professional Reviews:

"Recalling details of life in the ghetto--both random acts of kindness and terrible betrayal--is the "unfinished business" of [Marzynski's] life and his films. Highly recommended." - Video Librarian Reviews, Nov/Dec 2013

Description

  • FRONTLINE: Never Forget to Lie - A Film by Marian Marzymski

    Children of the Holocaust recount extraordinary stories of survival

    Marian Marzynski was born in Poland and survived the Holocaust as a Jewish child hidden by Christians. He has been making documentary films for over 50 years, first in Poland, where during the '60s he was one of the pioneers of cinema verite, then in Denmark, and for the last 30 years in the United States. He was a Guggenheim Fellow in 1982 and won two Emmy® Awards for his documentaries. He is a major contributor to such PBS series as AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, NOVA, and FRONTLINE. Some of his films like Return to Poland (1982), and Jewish Mother (1984), dealt with the subject of Holocaust. The three-hour Shtetl (1996), became the most important work of his career. In 2005 he produced A Jew Among the Germans for FRONTLINE, the story of building a Berlin memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe.

    In Never Forget to Lie, the most recent of Marzynski's critically-lauded autobiographical films, the director explores, for the first time, his own wartime childhood and the experiences of other child survivors, teasing out their feelings about Poland, the Catholic Church, and the ramifications of identities forged under circumstances where survival began with the directive "never forget to lie."
