✨Special Screening: Names Not Numbers

Film Viewing will be Sunday, October 25 – Tuesday, October 27
The Zoom call is Monday, October 26 at 8:15 pm

This documentary, funded in large part by The David and Marilyn Krupnick Foundation is the first of its kind in having students from two very different schools. It is an inspiration to all about the importance of fighting genocide and never forgetting the Holocaust. The oral histories captured by students from Kellman Brown Academy and The Lanning Square Middle School at KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy will become part of famous Holocaust archive collections worldwide and will also be used in our own community to educate students from many local schools at the Esther Raab Holocaust Museum & Goodwin Education Center at the Katz JCC.

During this social justice project, the students visited each other’s schools, shared lessons about the Holocaust, learned interviewing techniques, had a values discussion and were educated on working on the Names Not Numbers project by Tova Fish-Rosenberg. Their friendship and efforts culminated in a meaningful and powerful documentary made up of the stories 6 local Holocaust survivors.

The Zoom call is Monday, October 26 at 8:15 pm.  The discussion will be with Names not Numbers Creator Tova Fish-Rosenberg, students from Kellman Brown Academy and the Lanning Square Middle School at Kipp Cooper Norcross Academy.
