Human Rights Education Film "Just People"

"Just People: A Quest for Social Souls with Independent Minds" is a 50-min filmic essay exploring the challenges and complexities of being an independent individual while cooperating in a social group. How not to be a bystander, how to dare to stand out from the crowd?

After the Holocaust, postwar generations have asked themselves: What would I have done, living there and then? The film reframes the haunting question and looks for answers in the present rather than in the past: How do I behave today, now and here, in a group, and as an individual? What would you like to be, a just person or just a person?

The film trailer, discussion guide, reviews and promotional material can be downloaded here.
