Film screening of 'Our Children', which stars children who were survivors of the Holocaust and focuses on how they came to terms with their past. The film will be followed by a discussion on Jewish life in postwar Poland.

About the film: 'Undzere Kinder' ('Our Children') is a Yiddish film (with English subtitles) made in 1948. The film is one of the only postwar movies made in Yiddish and almost the last full length yiddish film to be made. It was also the first film which attempted to deal with the Holocaust. Suppressed by the postwar Polish Communist government as 'pro -Zionist' and lost for over 30 years, 'Our Children' was largely shot on location at an orphanage/school near Lodz.
