The next film in the 2018 Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series is the powerful but controversial film Amen, based on real-life character Kurt Gurstein, who secretly but unsuccessfully approached the Swedish Consulate, the German Protestant community and the Papal Nuncio to Germany in the hopes of exposing the annihilation of European Jewry.
Amen was directed in 2002 by Oscar-winner Costa-Gavras and is in English, French, Italian and German with English subtitles. The screening will be at 1 p.m. on Aug. 26 in the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center Theater at 12 Millstone Campus Drive. Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public.
Introductory remarks and post-screening discussion facilitated by Mark Edward Ruff, professor of history at Saint Louis University, where his areas of teaching include modern European history, European religious history and Nazi Germany.
