Holocaust Remembrance Day / Yom Hashoah
Yom HaShoah Film Screening
and Conversation with
Holocaust Survivor Dr. Joe Berger
Tuesday, April 25 | 7:30 PM
Tribeca Screening Room, 375 Greenwich St
Here I Learned to Love, a Holocaust documentary directed by Avi Angel, is a memory tour. Itzik Weinberg and Avner Kerem, brothers now in their 70s living in Israel, retrace the astounding odyssey through World War II that left them rootless as toddlers, and recall the “three mothers” who kept them alive.
After the screening, we will hear from Holocaust survivor Dr. Joe Berger, father of JCP community member Daniela Ben-Zion. Dr. Berger was born in 1937 in Yugoslavia and was forced to move to Budapest with his family in 1943. Dr. Berger was one of the 1,600 Jews who was taken to Switzerland on the Katsner train (the same transport as Itzik and Avner who are profiled in the film) and survived.
This program is intended for adults and high school students, and may be appropriate for middle schoolers together with their parents. Please contact Sima Green or Rabbi Jason for more details about the content.
This program has been generously underwritten by Daniela & Guy Ben-Zion,
in honor of Daniela’s parents, who are Holocaust survivors.
This event will kick off our inaugural JCP Spring Conversation Series. See all upcoming events >
