This is the true story of Freddy and Walte, two young Slovak Jews, who were deported to Auschwitz in 1942. On 10 April 1944, after meticulous planning and with the help and the resilience of their inmates, they manage to escape. While the inmates they had left behind courageously stand their ground against the Nazi officers, the two men are driven on by the hope that their evidence could save lives. After many grueling physical challenges, they make their way through the mountains back to Slovakia and finally meet the resistance and The Red Cross. Although they compile a detailed report about the systematic genocide at the camp, their account seems to be too harrowing to believe.

Join us on Thursday, October 14 at 7:00 PM, when noted author/historian Fred Rosenbaum talks about what the Allies knew, their silence, and the escape of inmates to alert the world.

Admission is $11 per household and includes the lecture by Fred Rosenbaum on October 14.

Sponsored by the EBIJFF in partnership with the CCJCC, Cong. B'nai Shalom,  Cong. B'nai Tikvah's Israel & World Jewry Committee, and Cong. Beth Emek.
