Jews and Baseball
Jews and Baseball traces the Jewish involvement in the history of the sport, from the early days to today’s All-Star Games. By bringing to life dramatic moments in this history, including Hank Greenberg’s support of Jackie Robinson and how the legendary Sandy Koufax pioneered rights for players, the film demonstrates how Jews shaped baseball, and baseball shaped them.

Watermarks: The Jewish Swimming Champions Who Defied Hitler
The film showcases the legendary women swimmers of the Vienna Sports Club (Hakoah). Founded in 1909 in response to the notorious Aryan Paragraph, which forbade most Austrian sports clubs from accepting Jewish athletes. Hakoah rapidly grew into one of Europe’s biggest athletic organization—and its women’s swim team virtually dominated national competitions in the 1930’s. This film is an uplifting tale of survival and friendship.
