Event Details

The Screening the Holocaust Film Series is a boldly themed cinematic event that presents a fascinating and diverse selection of film premieres exploring events, issues and personal recollections of one of recent history’s most defining episodes. It is presented in partnership with the Holocaust Teacher Institute at the University of Miami, The Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies, and The Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach.

Using cutting-edge animation, rare photographs, archive footage and witness testimony, MJFF 2019 film Dear Fredy is a moving tribute to an unsung Jewish hero who saved hundreds of children at Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. A beloved teacher and Zionist youth leader, Fredy Hirsch used his charisma and connections with SS officers to make life a little easier for the thousands of children he supervised, shielding them, even if temporarily, from the horrors outside, and fighting to his last breath to maintain their human dignity.
