Buchenwald Ball

Jewish Community Campus Social Hall
5801 West 115th Street
Overland Park, Kansas

Uplifting, full of swagger and joie de vivre, this film tells the story of 45 orphans who escaped the Holocaust and found their way to Australia after their liberation from the Buchenwald concentration camp. Every year on April 11, the anniversary of their liberation, the Buchenwald Boys, as they came to be known, held a ball filled with music, dancing, and an energy that defied their advancing ages and celebrated life, friendship, family and love. The film
documents their struggles, their humor, and ultimately the tenacity of their human spirits in the aftermath of unimaginable tragedy. (Running time: 52 minutes – English)

This event is open to the public at no charge, but reservations are encouraged.
