Would You Hide Me?

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 25 Nisan 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

For this virtual event, Beth Lane, who grew up at Temple Sholom, will discuss her path to finding her purpose as an artist, and how it led her to write, direct and produce her upcoming documentary feature film WOULD YOU HIDE ME? Beth's presentation will be followed by a Q&A, moderated by Rabbi Conover. 

WOULD YOU HIDE ME? is filmmaker, activist and actress Beth Lane's debut feature documentary. It tells the incredible story of seven siblings evading capture as German Jews during World War II. Among these children? Beth's own mother. Their survival was made possible by the heroic actions of the citizens of a small town just east of Berlin.

For Beth, this documentary feature film is both a professional milestone and a personal quest to immortalize this story of true humanity and refusal to stand by as egregious injustice is done. Throughout the 3-year production, Beth has interviewed family members, friends and top museum curators around the world about the events that took place in the small town of Worin, Germany, aiming to unearth the qualities of courage, bravery and heroism.

Beth Lane is a filmmaker, actress and activist living in Los Angeles and Ojai, California. A graduate of the MFA program at UCLA’s School of Theatre, Film & Television, Beth is the writer, producer and director of the feature documentary film, WOULD YOU HIDE ME?, which is in post-production. For Beth, this film is both a professional milestone and a personal quest to immortalize the incredible story of her family’s survival as Jews living in Germany during World War II and the unwavering courage shown by those who helped them.
