Slightly rewritten version of the article that appeared at Film Threat October, 2001, is now published at advocate.com. There’s also a link to shaderupe.com there, which is cool. I’ve received a couple of nice emails from Advocate readers. It’s great to see the article in such a high-profile place, and it’s nice to share.
I’m so excited!!! I leave for Warsaw on Friday the 13th!!! I’ll be staying with my good friend Jacek Wyrzykowski and his partner Krzysztof for a few days, before heading to Chelmno, Lodz and Treblinka as day trips, then going down to Lublin to visit Majdanek, Sobibor and Belzec, then on to Krakow where I hope to see Krzysztof Penderecki at his home, and I will definitely be in Oswiecim, more well known as Auschwitz. On the 24th I fly to Paris and plan on seeing several friends there also, and on Saturday the 28th, WHITEHOUSE LIVE!!!!
Today, I’m going to see Shoah Part 1 at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space. I guess I kinda sorta should be packing and arranging things for the trip, but seeing Shoah in a theatre, especially before leaving before my Poland trip, seems apt.
