Yom Ha-Shoah Film: “AN APARTMENT IN BERLIN”; Discussion with Dr. Michael Riff, Ramapo College, Dir. Holocaust and Genocide Studies

May 8: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

River Dell Hadassah, The Friends of the River Edge Library and the River Edge Cultural Center present a screening of the timely and informative documentary, AN APARTMENT IN BERLIN, a film by Alice Agneskirchner. Three young Israelis who have recently moved to Berlin lovingly restore an apartment and retrace the lives of the former occupants, the family of Simon and Rosa Adler who had moved to Berlin from Galicia a hundred years ago and were deported by the Nazis. Along with the filmmaker, the three expats examine the complex connection to the history of Germany and the apartment becomes a space for discussion and encounters with both the present and the past.

Dr. Michael Riff, Director of The Gross Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Ramapo College, will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the showing
