Special Film Screening- "As Seen Through These Eyes"

Sunday, December 4, 2:00 pm
Sabes Jewish Community Center

Directed by Hilary Helstein and narrated by Maya Angelou, As Seen Through These Eyes is a window into the surviving art and artists of the Holocaust. The film offers an incredible look at humanity's survival mechanism, regardless of race or religion. The eyes of the witnesses reveal the profound need to communicate at any cost

As Seen Through These Eyes features interviews with survivors who have given us something that history couldn't: a journal of the Holocaust as witnessed by those who through the very act of creating, risked their lives by doing what they were forbidden to do.

Introductory remarks by Jodi Elowitz,CHGS. Following the film, please join us for a gallery tour of the companion exhibition Art Survives: Expressions From the Holocaust.

Tickets: $10 ($8 Sabes JCC Premium and Community Members, Students)
