A short film, conversation, and brunch

The Holocaust Learning Center Committee presents a film screening and conversation with survivor Fred Behrend and filmmaker Larry Hanover. The documentary spans Fred’s remarkable life, from a youth shattered by Kristallnacht, his family’s flight to Cuba and then the US, and a stint in the US army teaching democracy to German prisoners of war, to a miraculous reunion with his boyhood friend Henry Baum, also a survivor, eighty years later. Come for a moving, heartwarming and uplifting morning. Teens as well as adults are encouraged to attend and hear Fred’s story of survival and triumph.

Please join us for brunch! The event will be held in the Reception Room.
