School Cinema – The Future of Remembrance

VOICES FROM THE ATTIC, 1988

As part of our School Cinema series on cinematic recollections of the Holocaust, in January we are offering two programs for school classes in the Arsenal. Debbie Goodstein's films VOICES FROM THE ATTIC (USA 1988) and ECHOES FROM THE ATTIC (USA 2015, 23. & 24.1.) circle around an attic in the Polish village of Urzejowice in which a couple named Grocholski hid 16 members of the director's family from the Nazis. In two trips 25 years apart, Goodstein traveled to Poland to learn more about the history of her family and their rescuers.
WAS BLEIBT WHAT REMAINS
(Gesa Knolle, Birthe Templin, Germany 2008, 25. & 26.1.) takes as its subject a family’s coming to terms with the Holocaust. Through the montage, a dialogue occurs between the relatives of a German-Jewish camp survivor and those of a camp overseer.
Please register in advance at distribution@arsenal-berlin.de

The project is supported by the foundation Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft (EVZ) (Memory, Responsibility and the Future).
