"AND HERE WE ARE...."

Film maker Matan Rochlitz recorded this powerful story, published by the New York Times, of one woman's monumental decision to save herself and how she lived with it.
"We sat in her living room, the camera started rolling, and she began. She was sharp, funny and generous, and when looking into the darkness and recalling that difficult time, she did not spare herself one bit." 

It reminds me of the hours I spent recording my grandmother in her living room, under the Sputnik light pointing from the ceiling.  At the end, before I pressed STOP on the tape recorder she’d asked, “you think someone will want to know all of this?  We should never forget what happened.”
