The next film in the 2018 Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series will be Run Boy Run, screening at 1:00 pm on June 24 in the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center Theater at 12 Millstone Campus Drive. Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public.
This powerful saga of courage and compassion tells the extraordinary true story of a young Polish boy’s struggle to outlast the Nazi occupation and maintain his Jewish faith through his intrepid will and the kindness of others. Escaping the Warsaw ghetto, nine-year-old Srulik flees to the woods, where he learns to hide from SS patrols and scour for food, until loneliness and the onset of winter drive him back to civilization. An unforgettable cinematic experience featuring exceptional performances and arresting cinematography. Based on the bestselling novel by Israeli author Uri Orlev.
Introductory remarks and post-screening discussion facilitated by Dr. Zvi Tannenbaum, former Professor of History at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin. Dr. Tannenbaum, who received his Ph.D. at Stanford University, is also a founding member of the Holocaust Educators and Academic Roundtable of the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education in Kansas City.
