Girl Scout Film Earns Gold Award

Mainline Media News states that Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest achievement for members, is something that any Girl Scout would be proud of. For Darragh Friedman, who comes from a family involved in the film industry, choosing to make a film for her project was an easy decision.

For the documentary, Friedman tracked down survivors of the Holocaust for on-screen interviews. The experience, which involved making many calls, following up on recommendations and visiting Jewish Community Centers and synagogues, is one that Friedman said was humbling. Friedman is currently studying communications and pre-law at Temple University and is involved with on-campus organizations including Temple Student Government and various school news and radio stations. Kudos to Darragh Friedman and her fantastic film.
