On January 27, the date designated in 2005 by the United Nations as International Holocaust Remembrance Day—and in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on January 27, 1945, MCHE will present a 20th anniversary screening of “The Holocaust: Through Our Own Eyes”as the first program in its 2015 film series, Documenting the Holocaust.
To mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, other films in the series will focus on various postwar perspectives of the Holocaust. Each is distributed by the National Center for Jewish Film, located on the campus of Brandeis University.
All films will be shown in the Social Hall of the Jewish Community Campus. Each program will begin at 7:00 p.m. with an introduction to the film. Seating for those with advance reservations begins at 6:30. Walk-ups will be seated at 6:45. To ensure advance seating for the remaining films, be sure to make your reservation at least one day in advance.
As a memorial tribute to Steve Chick, MCHE’s immediate past president and an avid supporter of the arts, and with gratitude to the community for its support of State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda, MCHE is offering the 2015 series at no charge. Advance reservations are encouraged, however, by calling MCHE’s automated response line, 913-327-8196, visiting the MCHE office, emailing email@example.com with full contact information, or reserving your seats below.
