“The story moved us greatly, and we had an engaging discussion afterward. The documentary is well-made and informative, combining the horrible chapter of Germany’s history with the history of Jill’s and the Leitz’s family as well as photography. We all learned a lot.”

“As a crash course or an introduction to Caribbean history and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, Diaspora is an excellent choice for college classrooms. Its shorter runtime means most class periods could include the full film.”

His techniques and performances have inspired modern dance and acting, and have even served as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease… may also make an interesting addition to WWII and post-war history classes, as Marceau’s Jewish heritage and work with the resistance are important to understanding WWII.

“[The three generations] form a notable lineage of distinctively conscientious Jewish-American public servants.” When a legacy of three generations in a family committed to public service exhibits a degree of character that makes it look straightforward, it is something, as this film ably shows, worth recognizing.”
