For the fifth year in a row, WTTW Channel 11in Chicago is broadcasting “Prisoner of Her Past” in commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Week. The film traces Chicago Tribune journalist Howard Reich’s journey to uncover his mother’s hidden Holocaust childhood – and why she is reliving it.

“Prisoner of Her Past” remains quite active: Howard recently returned from a residency at Adrian College in Michigan and is doing additional screenings and lectures across the Chicago area this spring and in Toronto in the fall. The film has been embraced in colleges and universities, where Howard has brought clips and opened discussions in classes on European history, genocide, journalism, Holocaust studies, creative writing and music.
