| great teaching tool for middle school
I would like a copy of this film. i have been looking everywhere.

I do not remember where I saw this film. it must have been some late night show but it has stuck with me for years, even though i do not have a copy to show anyone I have used the premise many times in talking about the Holocaust to young people. i am a youth director of the National Federation of Temple Youth. i have also been asked in the past to talk about the Holocaust to high school students. the idea of the boy who wears the star being the "good guy" leads into parallels of victim verses victimizer. or which is better, being the hammer or the nail. when is it right to be either.

great film. let me know if i can ever get my own copy.

thank you
