| Identity - touching story of our yesterdays
As part of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, my wife and I saw this little gem tonight in a packed theater, and not giving anything away for this is a journey film, in part a road trip between an old man trying to prove he is a Jew while all relatives and documents were destroyed years ago during the inferno of the Shoah. His traveling companion grows to love and respect him. She is young and while Turkish in Germany, also knows the cut-off that happens in life. Together they head off to find whatever proof they can. There's good humor here too, but the ending is quite powerful. Be prepared to accept the ride as a bargain.

Note - eventually the last survivors of the Holocaust, as with World War II, will pass on and then the deniers can have their day. As a survivor of the World Trade Center, and knowing that someday the last of US will also pass on, it is most thoughtful on a personal level.

Remember and respect.
