ABOUT THE EVENT:
Presentation of the documentary film Shoah Ambassadors followed by a virtual Q&A with A.W. Dreyfoos students and the film's Emmy Award-winning Director and Producer Keith Famie.
In Shoah Ambassadors, five Holocaust survivors are given an opportunity to share their personal histories with two young adults. These two young ambassadors, utilizing their own creative expression, then became the caretakers of this history.
"Many courageous Holocaust survivors have shared their stories with us, but sadly, their numbers dwindle daily. If we are going to access these memories directly, before the final grains filter through the hourglass, the time to do it is now."
This is the goal of the PBS documentary Shoah Ambassadors; to bridge the chasm between the generation who endured the nightmare of World War II and today’s bright-eyed, tech-savvy youths who may have only a limited grasp of what their elders suffered.
While we may assume the atrocities of the Holocaust are known by all, recent surveys show just how little Americans actually know about this dark period of world history that touched so many of our Jewish brothers and sisters. We are certain by bridging our greatest generation with our current generation (Gen z), acting as ambassadors of the Holocaust survivors' stories through this film, we will be able to broaden the understanding for not only our current generation but for generations to come as well.
This is a great opportunity to see a wonderful film and see inSIGHT grants at work in the school.
