Saved by Language tells the story of Moris Albahari, a Sephardic Jew from Sarajevo (born 1930), who spoke Ladino/Judeo-Spanish, his mother tongue, to survive the Holocaust. Moris used Ladino to communicate with an Italian Colonel who helped him escape to a Partizan refuge after he ran away from the train taking Yugoslavian Jews to Nazi death camps. By speaking in Ladino to a Spanish-speaking US pilot in 1944 he was able to survive and lead the pilot, along with his American and British colleagues, to a safe Partizan airport.

Binocular vision problems explained in six languages

binocular vision problems

I have recently released a series of videos in English, Spanish, Russian, French, Portuguese, and Italian about a topic that is not only dear to my heart, but one of importance to global public health: binocular vision problems (what it’s like to see when the two eyes don’t work together.). As there is a very little information available in languages other than English about this topic, I decided to record videos in six languages. Medical information needs to be accessible to people worldwide, no matter their language.
