Names, Not Numbers: A Movie in the Making
Wednesday, Jun 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The story never dies. Generations combine. Join us for an evening of inspiration, enlightenment and hope as we carry the story forward.
Ensuring students meet with Holocaust Survivors is a critical piece of our mission. Names, Not Numbers is an interactive multi media Holocaust Oral History Film Documentary project created by educator, Tova Rosenberg. The “Names, Not Numbers©” program, transformed the Holocaust educational experience for the 8th graders at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School into something special.
Moving beyond the traditional classroom, the students participated in a multifaceted experience that turned them into journalists and filmmakers. They developed in-depth interview questions, met, interviewed, filmed and edited the interviews with Survivors Helen Greenspun, Eva London-Ritt, Sonja Marchesano, and Harry Lowenstein as well as Liberator Gilbert Waganheim to become fully engaged in the full story of their life before, during and after the Holocaust.
Students gained a profound, firsthand understanding of the horror, sadness, and triumph needed to ensure these important stories are told, retold and remembered.
Join us for a screening of the culmination of their work. Immediately following the screening, a panel of students will answer questions about their experience.
Film screening: 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Panel discussion with students: 7:30pm – 8:00pm
