“Son of Saul”, this year’s Grand Prix winner at Cannes and Oscar contender for Best Foreign Picture, is a film told from the perspective of Saul Auslander, a prisoner and member of the Sonderkommandos at Auschwitz. Seen solely through his eyes, the viewer is immersed in a palpable reality that bares the moral dilemma Saul faces. It is a searing film that for some, may be difficult to watch, but will remain unforgettable. more Guggenheim, one of the art world’s most colorful characters, had a bohemian flair and remarkable eye for the emerging avant-garde artist. Among those she championed were Jackson Pollock, Max Ernst (whom she briefly married), Georges Braque, and Wassily Kandinsky. Reported to have as many lovers as she did works of art, Guggenheim led a whirlwind life. more Julius Rosenwald, a son of German-Jewish immigrants, helped build Sears, Roebuck, serving as both president and chairman. He was also a humanitarian, helping to fund over 5,000 schools for black children in the South and taking a leading role in establishing social services for some of the 100,000 impoverished Jewish immigrants in turn of the century Chicago. more
