In the Shadow of Memory DVD


“In the Shadow of Memory” is an exploration film of the ongoing effects of tragedy on succeeding generations. It is based on the life-story of Jerri Zbiral, whose mother and sister survived the Nazi destruction of the Czech village of Lidice during World War II. The stories had a profound impact on Jerri’s life.

Filmed in the Czech Republic and in Evanston, Illinois, In the Shadow of Memory consists of interviews with survivors, with German visitors to the 50th anniversary memorial, and with Jerri’s family, including her school-age children. The film explores how the tragedy was used for various purposes, and what the legacy of continued hatred can be.
