Heroes of the Holocaust: A Small Light

Make Your Own Map: Are YOU Ready to be BRAVE?

Aug 28 2023 • 29 mins

Thank you Tony Phelan and Joan Rater for creating the moving and mesmerizing limited series, A Small Light about Miep Gies, who hid the Frank family from the Nazis during the Holocaust in Amsterdam. I met them at a Jewish Federation Los Angeles screening at UTA and at Stephen Wise Temple. Joan Rater told the audience, "People make choices and choices make history." Miep Gies believed she was just an ordinary person who made a choice that anyone would make but we know that is not true. Would we choose to help? As Miep would say, "We can all turn on a small light in a dark room."
