Jews in Germany. The image that comes to mind is of yellow stars and concentration camps, of exile and slaughter. For the 12 years of Nazi rule, to be a Jew in Germany was to be a victim. But Jewish history here spans 2,000 years, most of it peaceful and productive, and the full story is one that a new museum attempts to capture in both its pain and its glory.

The Italian film "Life Is Beautiful," a tragicomic fable set partly in a concentration camp, has revived the decades-old debate on the latitude allowed the creative artist in depicting the ultimate horror of the Holocaust. Particularly in the Jewish community, which holds the Nazi murder of the 6 million deeply in its collective memory, any perceived trivialization of the Holocaust in literature or film quickly inflames profound sensitivities and never-healed scars.

C. L. "Max" Nikias, USC's provost and second-in-command, will become its next president, succeeding Steven B. Sample on Aug. 3 at the helm of the 34,000-student university, school officials announced Thursday. Nikias, a Cypriot-born electrical engineer with expertise in radar and sonar, was long mentioned as the leading candidate to become USC's 11th president, so much so that some trustees reportedly argued against conducting a national search. But the board went ahead, considering 75 other educators before returning to a man well-known and well-liked on campus.

IT was probably the detailed discussion about the energy uses of cow manure that really threw me. Normally when I sit in on meetings at production companies, the talk is all about outrageous actor salary demands, insane shooting schedules and botched script development. But at Participant Productions, the self-absorption of the movie business feels as far away as a distant moon of Jupiter.

Howard Hersh Felder is just 29 years old, but a conversation with him is like a visit with an older, wiser relative you don't see very often. A great-uncle, maybe. Or a grandmother. Someone who's lived so long that there are few things left that don't remind the person of a story.

It's not yet noon on a Sunday morning, and Marcia Berman has already recounted 100 years of history. As the video rolls, Berman, a children's songwriter, tells the saga of her family, from her Polish-born grandparents' arranged marriage to her parents' courtship at a Boyle Heights soda fountain to her own adolescent experiences in a socialist-Zionist youth group. Prompting the narrative is Ellie Kahn, founder of the oral history venture Living Legacies.

Documentaries or documentariezzzzzz? A speech-making TV executive in another city tells me that he begins his public talks by asking how many in the audience favor having more documentaries on the air. Nearly every hand shoots up. Then he asks how many can name the last documentary they've watched. No hands. Rim shot. This unscientific polling persuades him that, to most Americans, documentaries make better lip service than viewing.
