Event Details

Description

The film tells a poignant story about two Holocaust survivors who were miraculously reunited after nearly 80 years at the Museum's 2022 South Florida Dinner in Boca Raton, FL. Now in their late 90s, they are spending the precious time they have left rekindling their friendship and educating the next generation about the dangers of hatred and division. This uplifting story explores the enduring power of connection and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unimaginable adversity.

Immediately following the screening of the twenty-minute film, there will be a live in-person conversation with the film's director Jordan Horowitz, along with Holocaust survivors Jack Waksal of Bal Harbour and Samuel Ron of Boca Raton.
