Centropa.org, based online and (physically) in Vienna, carries out research, educational and creative projects on Jews in central Europe. Much of its work is based on family photographs and indepth interviews. It is directed by my old friend and traveling companion, the photographer Edward Serotta -- I write a semi-regular travel column for it.
Among Centropa's projects are brief documentary films based on its photo collections and interviews. They provide unique insights into how Jewish life in mainly pre-WW2 central Europe looked, felt and was experienced.
These are now available for viewing on YouTube and downloadable as video podcasts on iTunes (go to the iTune store and search for centropa).
