RETURN AND REMEMBER

At the end of World War II in Europe, those who survived the Holocaust were faced with the difficult task of beginning life anew. For some, this meant a return to their countries of origin, for others immigration to new lands. For most, return to life was made possible by a desire to move forward – away from the past. Only later were survivors and western society able to remember and reflect upon these experiences. Films in this series were selected to explore this process of returning and the complications of remembrance.

All films will be shown on Wednesdays in the social hall at the Jewish Community Campus. Each program will begin at 7:00 p.m. with an introduction to the film.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for those with advance reservations. Seating for those without reservations will begin at 6:45 p.m.

Shown in the Social Hall of the Jewish Community Campus

With the aid of a fellow Auschwitz survivor (Martin Landau) and a hand-written letter, an Auschwitz survivor struggling with memory loss (Christopher Plummer) embarks on a cross-country odyssey to find the former Nazi responsible for the deaths of his family members. This suspense-filled story is one of belated revenge and ultimate accountability.
