Free Inspiring Film

This is from Lisa who watches a lot of documentaries, so she knows a really wonderful one when she sees it.

If you’re looking for an inspiring film to see, please come to the Museum this Wednesday evening, October 20, for a special free screening of Teenage Witness: The Fanya Heller Story.

In this documentary, Ms. Heller recounts her Holocaust experiences to inner-city teenagers who are themselves struggling with very harsh existences. I saw this documentary when it aired on PBS last spring and was completely drawn in and moved by how Ms. Heller and these teenagers connect with each other in such a deep and empathetic way about struggle, survival, and hope.
