This film takes an intimate look into the world of Regina Karolinski (Oma) and Bella Katz, two friends who live together in Berlin.
Having survived the Holocaust and then stayed in Germany after the war, it is through the food they cook together that they remember their childhoods, maintain a bond to each other, and answer questions of heritage, memory, and identity. Oma and Bella, screens Sunday, March 24 at 1 p.m. at the Little Theatre and is part of Women & Power: Women's History Film Series. This presentation is co-sponsored by the JCC Ames-Amzalak Rochester Jewish Film Festival.
