A footnote to your obituary. Helga edited the Olivier and Preminger Films - and several others, under the name Helga Cranston (the name of her first husband) -should anyone wish to search further. During her initial work for the Jewish Agency in Israel, she made documentaries on Kiryat Shmoneh and Ashdod which were truthful and did not meet the propaganda criteria. The first was discarded, and the second only appeared due to pressure from Haim Hefer and other friends in Kol Israel (it won a prize at an international town planning congress). Helga was totally dedicated to Israel but clear eyed, brought a sophistication to the infant Israeli film industry which it did not at first possess, and her teaching was an inspiration to all her students- some of whom attended her funeral. The little video scarcely represents her.
