Humanities NebraskaThe Holocaust: A Personal Documentary with Oliver Pollak
Saturday, April 18, 2015
2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Walt Branch Library
For middle school age through adult
Pollak gives audiences a unique view of the Holocaust by telling the story of his grandfather, a survivor of the Theresin concentration camp. Artifacts shown include family papers, the star of David that his grandfather was forced to wear under Nazi occupation and items from the camp. Spiced with personal reminiscences of Pollak's grandfather, we follow his life through youth and early manhood, through implementation of the Nuremberg Laws and incarceration in Theresin, to liberation by the Allied forces in 1945 and immigration to the United States. The program touches on religion, Judaism, ethics, genocide, European history and psychology. Presented in conjunction with Humanities Nebraska.
