NANA film screening

Come support Serena Dykman, a fellow 3Ger, in her film pursuits for a screening of her documentary film, Nana. Serena will have an informational and Q/A session after the film.

Cost: $8
Please purchase your tickets in advance 

About the documentary:
The filmmaker retraces her grandmother’s Auschwitz survival story, and investigates how her life-long fight against intolerance can continue to be taught to the new generations, against the backdrop of current events.

Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant, born in Poland, survived Ravensbruck, Malchow, and Auschwitz, where she was the forced translator of the “Angel of Death”, Dr. Mengele. She dedicated her post-war life to publicly speaking of her survival to the young generations, so that it would never be forgotten or repeated.

Alice and Serena, her daughter and granddaughter, explore how Maryla’s fight against intolerance can continue today, in a world where survivors are disappearing, and intolerance, racism and antisemitism are on the rise.

In her recently published book "In Spite of it All," Hanna tells a story not just of survival but of rebirth. In the face of adversity, one can persevere and prevail!

Circle Series: Godwin's law: where the conversation begins?

Circle Series: Godwin's law: where the conversation begins?

  • Congregation Emanu-El, 4th Floor (Leventritt room) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Today’s political discourse has seen a rise in references to the Holocaust.

"Godwin's Law" asserts that as an online discussion progresses, the greater the chance of a comparison involving Hitler, the Nazis or the Holocaust.  From Trump, to refugees, to hate crimes, Godwin’s Law is applied with increasing frequency.  Nazi or Holocaust references aren't just relegated to online discussions, but have become talking points made by pundits and politicians.

  • Is this an affirmation of Holocaust memory or an abuse of it?  
  • Where is the line to be drawn and by whom?
  • As guardians of our family's history and legacy how can we ensure Holocaust memory is not abused?

Join Alexis Fishman and Dan Brooks as we discuss this important topic

Please be on time as the tour will begin promptly at 6:35p

Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann

Operation Finale documents one of the great spy thrillers of the 20th century, examines the enormity of the crimes committed during the Nazi regime, and calls on us to consider the meaning of justice and accountability.

The Nazi responsible for the murder of millions of innocent people may well have lived out his days in Argentina as “Ricardo Klement” - until fate, a Holocaust survivor, and Israel’s foreign intelligence service intervened.

Explore recently declassified artifacts and immersive multimedia presentations that reveal the secret history behind the capture, extradition, and trial of one of the world’s most notorious war criminals.

New Dimensions in Testimony Installation

New Dimensions in Testimony℠ is an interactive testimony installation. The first of its kind in the New York area, New Dimensions in Testimony℠ allows visitors to have “virtual conversations” with Holocaust survivors Pinchas Gutter and Eva Schloss. Visitors ask questions and lifelike projections of Pinchas and Eva answer those questions in real time—offering personal reflections about life before, during, and after the Holocaust. Specialized recording and display technologies and next-generation natural language processing revolutionize the ways we can communicate and learn from each other across time and space.
