Screening of Children of Terror Documentary

A new film produced by Dr. Shawn Kildea of the Department of Communication and Journalism and Gina Grosso (’11) will premier at Rider University.  The film is about two young girls, one a Polish Catholic and the other a German Jew, born in the same year, in two different countries, two different faiths and traditions, who survived the Holocaust of WW II. They survived deportation, labor camps, concentration camps, starvation, disease and isolation. Despite their dramatically different traditions and circumstances, they shared a common trauma - the fear of being a child in wartime.

The film based on the book Children of Terror will be shown for the first time at:

Both authors Bozenna Urbanowicz Gilbride and Inge Auerbacher will be present for a discussion lead by Dr. Harvey Kornberg, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Julius and Dorothy Koppelman Holocaust/Genocide Resource Center and Father Joseph Jakub, Rider University Chaplain.

 

This event is free and open to the public.
