Stones from the soil the story of the Gross Breesen farm / a film by Michael Caplan
- Projected medium
- [United States] : Montrose Pictures, [2004?]
At a unique school called Gross Breesen in 1930s Germany, a small group of Jewish teenagers were trained to become the vanguard of a new society. One of them was the film-maker's father, Rudolph Caplan. Initially protected by the administrators and their families from the growing anti-Semitism in the country, the school's seclusion was shattered in November 1938, the day after Kristallnacht, when an SS squadron arrived to terrorize and destroy. Sixty-six years later, Rudi's son returned to find the farm in a tribute to a father, a reflection on memory, and the preservation of a formerly untold story from the Nazi era.
