Sidewalk Films 1821 2nd Ave N, Birmingham, AL, United States

The second-to-last film in our 11th Annual Holocaust in Film Series, this screening and discussion will be moderated by UAB Prof. Michele Forman.

This gripping story is told through interviews with historians and relatives of the key players. First-person accounts from survivors detail their harrowing escape from Europe and immigration to the Philippines. The 2024 Holocaust in Film Series is presented by Perlman Charitable Fund.
