Watch No. 4 Street of our Lady In Your Own Home
If you’ve not yet seen No. 4 Street of Our Lady, the film by three Penn State filmmakers that tells the story of a Catholic Polish woman who saved 15 Jewish neighbors from the Nazis during World War II, there’s an easy way to remedy that. The film, by Barbara Bird, Judy Maltz, and Richie Sherman, is being distributed more widely.
You can download it from iTunes, or rent or buy it from Amazon. (You can watch a free excerpt there, too.) The film is listed on Netflix, but”proof of demand” is required for the company to release it. If you add the film to your Netflix queue, you can help create that demand.
The film is continuing to get attention. The rescuer, Francisca Halamajowa, was honored posthumously three weeks ago by the Anti-Defamation League; two granddaughters accepted the award. And it’s also been added to the materials available at Facing History, which provides resources for teachers both in the United States and internationally.
