Brave Girls Defy Taliban...

Please take 2 and a half minutes to honour these brave girls and their families and teachers in Kabul, Afghanistan. It's worth the 15 second commercial at the beginning.

Check out this news story posted on CNN yesterday.

Spielzeugland (Toyland)

My KivaFriend Wolfgang says...
"It is in German, I am afraid, but it should work quite well even without understanding the dialogue.

Germany 1942. Marianne Mei├čner with her son, Heinrich, are good friends with the Jewish family Silberstein (the two boys, Heinrich and David, are both playing the piano); the Silbersteins are about to be deported. Marianne tells Heinrich that the Silbersteins are going to move to Toyland. Heinrich wants to go, too. The movie starts on the morning of the Silbersteins' deportation - interspersed with retrospectives to the preceding days."

works too well, in my opinion...
