Still from "In The shadow Of Memory"Teller

This 52 min. documentary film focuses on Jerri Zbiral, the daughter of a survivor of the Nazi destruction of the Czech village of Lidice. Although she was born after the war, and left the country as an infant, her mother's stories have had a profound effect on her life. It is a compelling story that addresses emotional issues that span generations. This award-winning film combines historic footage and contemporary interviews with survivors. The 50th anniversary of the massacre is a starting point for an ongoing personal exploration of the legacy of tragedy, relevant far beyond a World War II setting.

ALAN TELLER (b. 1946) received post-graduate training in anthropology and photography at Indiana University, which led him to create the Inner-City Photo Workshop, a Chicago center for high-school dropouts.

JERRI ZBIRAL (b. 1948) was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia. She received a Master of Fine Arts degree in photography from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York. Jerri founded and directed community photography programs for the Public Art Workshop and the Community Arts Center of the Uptown Hull House in Chicago.
