Center Symposium hosts screening of “Unzere Kinder”
Tuesday, July 20, 2021
12:30 - 2:30 p.m.
The Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies invites the public to an online screening of the Polish Yiddish-language film “Unzere Kinder”(1948), one of the first films on the Holocaust, by directors Nathan Gross and Shaul Goskind. Restored by The National Center for Jewish Film and given new English subtitles, the film had been shot on location in Poland with several child survivors of the Shoah. One of them, Shimon Redlich, will join us live from Israel for a panel discussion after the screening. The program will begin on Tuesday, July 20, at 12:30 p.m. EST. The event is part of the 19th Annual Martin and Doris Rosen Summer Symposium on "Remembering the Holocaust."
