Additional Notes:
“The greatest threat to the rule of law is not the people outside it, but those uncertain and distorted situations in which [the law] becomes bad, contradictory, and hypocritical.”
—István Bibó

István Bibó, the great Hungarian political thinker of the 20th century, philosopher, and minister during the 1956 Hungarian revolution, was sentenced to life imprisonment, and later released under an amnesty. In this film, Forgács presents the sensitivity and insight of Bibó's social and historical analysis, and uses unretouched found footage to provide us with a poetic glimpse into the Hungarian landscape of the twentieth century. This film is winner of Best Director for Short and Experimental Film at the Hungarian Film Festival, 2002. With score composed by Tibor Szemzo.

Additional Notes:
A Letter to Mother (1939) is one of the last Yiddish films made in Poland before the Nazi invasion. The plot centers on the story of mother's persistent efforts to support her family, while her husband moves to America. After her family is pulled apart by severe poverty and the turmoil of WWI, she finally makes her way to New York in hopes for better future. A Letter to Mother was hailed by the New York Times as one of the best Yiddish films to reach America. It was the highest grossing Yiddish film of its time.

****************

This series commemorates the start of the Great War at a time when violence once again disrupts peaceful life around the world. Jews were among the soldiers and civilians who paid a high human cost for the fighting, including economic hardship, population dislocations, pogroms, unjust accusations, and death. In the aftermath of the war, some Jews were politically radicalized, many assimilated, while others emigrated. The Great War had a long-lasting effect on the following decades, leading to WWII and its own catastrophic events. Four classic international films reflect a range of Jewish experiences in the East and the West.

LCDR Stewart Sutherland (ret) enlisted in the USCG on 30 August 1960. In his retirement he became an active and vital member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary in the port of New York and New Jersey. He will be celebrating his 50th anniversary as a member of the Coast Guard family this year.

THIS IS A SURPRISE SO DONT TELL STEW or CAROL!!!

Throughout the years he has served his nation from the jungles of Vietnam to the frozen wastes of Antarctica. His contribution to the USCG during peace and war has rarely been rivaled. His civilian contributions as a scientist and marine biologist at Columbia University's Lamont Earth Observatory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute continue to expand our understanding of our oceans and climate.

As an Auxiliarist he serves hundreds of hours a year and maintains the largest facility in the Auxiliary, the former USCGC Point Brown, now known as the M/V Lady B. This facility provides Auxiliary members with a unique opportunity for training that can be achieved nowhere else. He is also a regular presence standing the watch at Station New York and working in the Water Way Management office at Sector New York. His dedication has exponentially increased the body of knowledge, professionalism and effectiveness of the Auxiliary, allowing the 1SR to truly be “first and foremost” in the nation.

Accept "Except"
 
So often, young people are lectured about what is wrong, but not given a direction that is right. Join us in generating a dialogue to encourage thought, and produce action from the heart.
