Leaving Memel - Refugees from the Reich Love Your Neighbor Mini Film Series
Sunday, August 4, 2019 - 4:00pm
Leaving Memel - Refugees from the Reich tells the story of Judith Golden's family and what they experienced when the times changed and Hitler began demonizing Jews, homosexuals and Gypsies in Europe. It's a small, personal memoir tucked inside a much larger, darker tale and has strong resonance today as anti-immigration fervor reaches new highs under our present leadership. It's also a story of survival, great timing and strong family bonds that make the difference between life and death.
The second film in our Love Your Neighbor mini-series is Leaving Memel. Director Fred Finkelstein will be with us to describe the making of the film and the stories behind his family's journey from Germany to the US during World War II.
