Spiegler Holocaust Remembrance Lecture

Maya Brown, a child survivor, will give the Meta and John Spiegler Holocaust Remembrance Lecture this year.

She was born in Vitebsk, Belarus. Her parents had fled Warsaw in 1939 after the Nazis invaded. Fleeing once again when the Nazis invaded Belarus, they spent the rest of the war in Uzbekistan. The family returned to Warsaw after the war, but after surviving a pogrom in the market where forty Jewish survivors were killed, her parents decided that they were still not safe in Warsaw. Forced into hiding from the anti-Semitism that existed, Maya’s family fled to West Berlin.  They lived in Tempelhof displaced-persons camp in Germany before eventually coming to Canada and then the United States.

Film: Footnote

Academic rivalry among professors of Talmudic studies may not seem like a premise for a film, but when the professors are father and son and the father receives an award probably intended for the son…. It’s a 2012 release by famed director Joseph Cedar, starring Shlomo Bar-Aba as the father and Lior Ashkenazi as the son.
