Film Screening: My Dear Children

October 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

The Center for Jewish Civilization invites you to join us for a film screening, along with co-producer, co-director, and writer, Leann Dance.My Dear Children follows one woman’s quest to unravel a family mystery. It is a journey that reveals a heartbreaking and little known humanitarian tragedy. One hundred years ago, Jews in what is today Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus suffered through what scholars now call “the holocaust of its day,” Pogroms that swept the region from 1917-1921 killed some 250,000 Jews, perhaps many more. Using a letter describing those horrific events, Judy Favish, a 61-year-old South African Jew traces the tragedy that tore apart not only her family, but also tens of thousands of others. It is a story shared by Jews the world over. Light refreshments will be served prior to the event. WHEN:    Wednesday, October 3 , 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM WHERE:  Mortara Center for International Studies, 3600 “N” Street, NW, Washington, DC 20057 FOR MORE INFORMATION:   RSVP is encouraged. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/film-screening-my-dear-children-tickets-48646153956?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
