Rosenberg Film Series

A Brivele der Mamen (A Letter to Mother) – St. Louis Premiere!

Date: Sunday, November 26, 2017

Time: 1:00 pm

Location: Holocaust Museum & Learning Center, 12 Millstone Campus Drive, St. Louis, MO 63146

Directed by Joseph Green
Poland, 1939, 106 minutes
In Yiddish with English subtitles

This tale of family disintegration and poverty serves as a metaphor for the displacements facing European Jewry at that time. One of the last Yiddish films made in Poland before the Nazi invasion, the film tells the story of a mother’s persistent efforts to support her family in pre-WWI Polish Ukraine and the family’s eventual immigration to the United States in search of a brighter future.

Introductory remarks and a post screening discussion will be facilitated by Diane Everman, Archivist and Curator of the exhibition, “Untold Sacrifices: The St. Louis Jewish Community in the Great War.”

Please RSVP by calling 314-442-3711 or by emailing AGoldfeder@JFedSTL.org.
