In My Own Words:
I love to read, travel and go to the movies, but my favorites will always be those silent movies, you know the ones, flicks from the beginning of Hollywood, when acting was truly and art and words weren't needed.
That doesn't mean I don't watch or read the new stuff--I can often be found hanging out at the theater, viewing the most latest released action flick.
Besides the movies, Disney is high o… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful thriller!, 3 Jun 2011

Let's just say life back then, when a young lady had been tossed into the streets, wasn't filled with many options. In order to survive, Lila knows her only choice is to… Read more

Broken Birds, The Story of My Momila is a moving chronicle centering on the debilitating effects that people suffer during times of war and suffering. An overly protective streak evolves, as Jeannette Katzir so brilliantly shows, which can be damaging to a family.

Jeannette Katzir mother, Channa, lost nearly her entire family to the Holocaust. Having learned to survive, Channa's surviving brother teaches her how to escape the Nazis, fight, live in a forest, save scraps of food, and keep what she holds precious close. Family is precious to Channa, strangers of any kind could mean the end of all she holds dear, and the constant fear that terrorized her childhood will always linger… Read more
