Join us for a screening of Raise the Roof, a film that documented the reconstruction of Gwoździec, an eighteenth-century wooden Polish synagogue featuring intricate ceiling murals that was later destroyed by the Nazis. The efforts of artists Rick and Laura Brown and Handhouse Studio inspired hundreds of people to join them, using their hands, old tools and techniques to bring Gwoździec’s history, culture, science, and art back to life. In partnership with the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

5:00 p.m.- Light hors d’oeuvres available for purchase in the Bloch Lobby

Free- tickets required



The Board of Directors of the Association of Holocaust Organizations strongly condemns Facebook for allowing its users to post expressions of Holocaust denial on its site. This action by Facebook validates and supports lies, hatred and antisemitism. We call upon Holocaust organizations around the world to publicly condemn Facebook for this policy.
