Each year, the Friends of the Maltz Museum honor the memory of 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust and celebrate the courage of those who lived to tell harrowing stories of survival. Join us for films, lectures, and personal accounts of heroism on this important day.
1PM – FILM SCREENING OF LOST TOWN
Lost Town tells the story of one man’s obsessive search to get closer to his deceased father by uncovering the story of his family’s town of Trochenbrod, the only all-Jewish town to ever exist outside of Palestine. Trochenbrod’s 5000 Jews were obliterated by the Nazis, except for 33 townspeople who escaped the massacre there. This personal search triggers a resurgence of interest in the town and reconnects the few remaining survivors who hadn’t seen each other in over 60 years.
Jewish Clevelander and Holocaust survivor Betty Gold, of blessed memory, was one of those 33 people. She was an active volunteer with the Maltz Museum; we remember her on this day and through this film. Join us!
