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.
