Letters Home

Freda left her home in Austria in 1925 to start a new life in America. As a member of the American Army’s Women’s Army Corps, she traveled through Europe after WWII, returning to Germany and Austria. Hacker (My Knees Were Jumping: Remembering the Kindertransports) uses her great-aunt’s letters to her family in New York during that journey as well as faded and discolored archival film to portray the search for what no longer exists and the fragility of memories. http://washingtondcjcc.org/center-for-arts/film/WJFF/2011-film-pages/through-the-eye-letters-yizkor.html
