Waiting for Anya

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Waiting for Anya has little to do with Anya, but everything to do with bravery, selflessness, and the sanctity of human life. Often, history books covering WWII include gruesome pictures of Holocaust prison camps, survivors, etc., but rarely do they speak to the quieter European sectors that [...]

It should be noted that there are several incidents of this kind of [...]

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
