January 27, International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust, was introduced by the United Nations in 2005 to commemorate the Holocaust and the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945. To honor this day, and remind us all of the current growing popularity of anti-Semitism, cultural institutions around the world will participate in a global film screening of Shoah, the 1985 documentary by Claude Lanzmann. With a running time of 9½ hours, both surviving victims and perpetrators of the systematic extermination of Jews by the German Reich are given time to speak on camera. There is no historical footage included. Lanzmann worked on the film for 11 years, and was awarded the Honorary Golden Bear by the Berlinale for a lifetime of work.  FREE

Panel discussion will take place the following day on 1/28, 7 - 9 PM, on Holocaust education.
