Holocaust Museum LA presents the “Teicholz Holocaust Remembrance Film Series: Documentary Films,” a virtual series of three curated films and discussions. Upon registration, participants will receive a link to watch the films in advance and then join via Zoom for live discussions with Tom Teicholz, an award-winning journalist, author and film historian, and guests specific to each film.
On Aug. 16, two short films, “One Survivor Remembers” (1995) and the West German “Ihr Zent Frei” (“You Are Free”) (1983), will be featured. Gerda Weissmann's account of surviving the Holocaust, “One Survivor Remembers” won both an Oscar (Best Documentary, Short Subject) and an Emmy for Outstanding Informational Special and was produced by HBO and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. In 2012 the film was selected for inclusion in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, a registry reserved for films that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
“Ihr Zent Frei” was nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary, Short Subject. The film highlights the accounts of five former U.S. serviceman and a survivor who share their personal stories of the liberation of Nazi concentration camps in 1945.
The panel will include “One Survivor Remembers” director Kary Antholis and renowned Holocaust scholar Michael Berenbaum.
