Witnesses to the Holocaust Archive
2015 Holocaust Film Series
Jewish Community Campus Social Hall
5801 West 115th Street
Overland Park, Kansas
This virtually unknown, independent film is one of the first American features to dramatize the Holocaust and only the second to depict a Holocaust survivor (called “refugee,” as the film predates the use of the term “survivor”) as the main protagonist. A musical drama, it stars popular entertainer Moishe Oysher who, despite suffering from traumatic amnesia, becomes a singing sensation. Set in New York, the film includes extremely rare and poignant film material. (Running time: 86 minutes –English)
This event is open to the public at no charge, but reservations are encouraged.
