The 2019 Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series returns June 30 with Remember, a suspenseful and poignant film about a Holocaust survivor struggling with dementia, starring Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau.
In this powerful film, a Holocaust survivor, with the aid of a fellow survivor and a hand-written letter, embarks on a cross-country odyssey to find the former Nazi responsible for the deaths of their family members.
Introductory remarks and post-screening discussion facilitated by Erin McGlothlin, Associate Professor of German and Jewish Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. McGlothlin’s main research interests are German-Jewish literature and the literature of the Holocaust. In 2006, she published Second Generation Holocaust Literature: Legacies of Survival and Perpetration.
The screening will be at 1 pm on June 30 in the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center Theater at 12 Millstone Campus Drive. The film is in English and some German with English subtitles. Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public.
