Documentary Film: “Surviving Anschluss: Austrian Jews in the Holocaust ”

Event Date: April, 15 2014

Event Times: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The Appleton Public Library hosts a free public screening of the Lawrence University-produced documentary film "Surviving Anschluss: Austrian Jews in the Holocaust." Anschluss refers to Adolf Hitler's 1938 annexation of Austria into political union with Germany. An audience Q & A will follow the screening. The film was created by students in Lawrence's film studies program and was inspired by the college's May 2012 multimedia Holocaust Symposium. The film features clips from the symposium as well as individual interviews with four survivors of the Anschluss: Curtis Brown of Neenah, as well as Anne Kelemen, Gerda Lederer and Renee Weiner, all from New York City, all of whom share their personal stories of fleeing Austria in 1938 to escape the Nazis.
