Coming This February
The Last Survivor
Sunday February 6
Holocaust Memorial Center Auditorium
The Last Survivor is a character-based, feature-length documentary that presents the stories of genocide survivors and their struggle to make sense of tragedy by working to educate, motivate and promulgate a civic response to mass atrocity crimes, with a focus on awareness, prevention, activism and civic engagement.
Following the lives of survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities—the Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo—The Last Survivor presents a unique opportunity to learn from the lessons and mistakes of our past, in order to have lasting impact on how we act collectively in the face of similar issues today.
The Last Survivor was shot on location in five countries on four continents and shows how such tragedies can happen anywhere. It also highlights how people can rebuild their lives after tragedy.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Director Michael Pertnoy.
This event is presented by the Holocaust Memorial Center, with support from the Lenore Marwil Jewish Film Festival.
