Incredible Sisterhood event tonight to meet Rabbi Dov, Delicious food (thanks to the chefs) delightful company, and we had a truly wonderful time tonight. SO glad I joined!!!
Dear friends, As we remember together during this month of Yom HaShoah, thank you for inviting us again to share news about our new documentary, The Presence of Their Absence, featuring a new story tradition with a son of Holocaust survivors. We follow Fred Zaidman on a journey to trace his inherited trauma. Armed with only scant clues from his late parents, he ventures into the unknown to tell his story for this first time. With helpers in Poland, Israel, Germany, and an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta who guides us through a cemetery in Poland - Fred finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah, unshackles his pain and reconstructs his future. Yad Vashem has called The Presence of Their Absence “a film for the ages”. We are delighted it has just come to Digital HD on iTunes and your other platforms: ITUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/…/the-presence-of-the…/id1449946652 AMAZON: https://www.amazon.com/Presence-Their-Absence-…/…/B07P1C57FL You may also access a DVD on our website: https://thepresenceoftheirabsence.com We hope to bring the film abroad and to USA cities shortly and, in the meantime, welcome your comments on our website, or on [email protected] With gratitude, Donna Kanter and team The Kanter Company, Inc.

I will be giving a presentation at the Intolerance and Holocaust Museum in Albuquerque on June 9th at 3:00pm. Lilo Waxman's dollhouse rooms and miniatures which were hidden from the Nazis are on permanent display at the Museum. I will project family photos of Lilo and talk about her life. This photo is of Lilo on the ship from Germany to New Mexico in 1936.
NEW DOCUMENTARY REVEALS A HIDDEN SHOAH STORY Dear friends, It’s an honor for me to be at the forefront of a story tradition that belongs uniquely to children of Holocaust survivors. Thank you for inviting me to tell you more. My new film is quite a departure from my last one, LUNCH, about Jewish comedy legends: The Presence of Their Absence follows a son of survivors on a journey to trace his inherited trauma. Armed with only scant clues from his late parents, Fred Zaidman ventures into the unknown to tell his story for this first time. With helpers in Poland, Israel, Germany, and an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta - Fred finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah. Yad Vashem has called The Presence of Their Absence “a film for the ages”. We are delighted it has just come to Digital HD on iTunes and your other platforms: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/the-presence-of-their-absence/id1449946652 https://www.amazon.com/Presence-Their-Absence-Fred-Zaidman/dp/B07P1C57FL. You may also order a DVD on our website: https://thepresenceoftheirabsence.com/ I hope you will view the film, send your thoughts, and share your personal stories on [email protected] With gratitude, Donna Kanter and team
