On April 28, 1945, life begins again.  Hundreds of survivors from the German concentration camps arrive at the harbor of Malmo, Sweden.  Now, 70 years later the survivors are watching this archival footage for the very first time and as they discover themselves, they re-experience the emotions from this special day.

Join The Jewish Federation on Thursday, January 21 at 7pm in the Beatrice Friedman Theatre for a screening and a post-film discussion with director Magnus Gertten.  Tickets are $10.  A private wine and cheese reception with the director will be held at 5:30pm; tickets for this special event are $25 and include the screening.

We are in urgent need of additional volunteers. If you can volunteer on a regular basis, or be on call for emergency coverage, please contact Jennifer New at The Federation for additional details. [email protected] or call 941.552.6304.
