Board Room, on the 2nd Floor at the JCC Benderson Family Building
Presented with the American Association of Teachers of French of Western New York.
Sarah’s Key (2010), takes place in present-day Paris, as an American journalist researches for her article to write about the 60th year anniversary of the “Vel d’Hiv” (huge stadium which was used for indoor cycling) jewish round up in Paris in 1942. When she moves into her father-in-law’s childhood apartment, she realizes it once belonged to the Strazynski family, and their daughter Sarah, the Jewish occupants who were forced out and deported 60 years prior. Following the film guest speaker Regine Marton, the granddaughter of Hungarian Jewish immigrants murdered in the camps during the Holocaust (Shoah), will share a written account of her mother’s experience in France, a child survivor who was hidden by friends during the war and conduct a Q&A with the audience.
The Screening of Sarah’s Key will be in conjunction with the photography exhibit Ghosts: French Holocaust Children.
