Drawing Against Oblivion – April 17 – 7pm Social Hall at the Jewish Community Campus

Austrian painter and photographer Manfred Bockelmann, was born in 1943, a time when millions of people, including hundreds of thousands of children, were killed. He asks himself “What happened to the children who lay in the wrong cradle? Bockelmann wants to shed light on the countless children and teenagers who were murdered by the Nazis and since disappeared in the archives as a statistical number. He wants to give back a face, a personality, to the numbers. Drawn in charcoal on coarse canvas, he draws one portrait after the other. Seen through the eyes of the artist, the film embarks on a journey to visit the archives of Auschwitz and to meet Holocaust survivors who knew the children he has drawn.

(Running time: 67 minutes, German and English with English subtitles. 2015)
