As part of the Roger Williams University 2012 Film/Speaker Series on the Jewish Experience, three films and a lecture will take place at Roger Williams University from Tuesday, November 13, through Sunday, November 18.
On Thursday, November 15 , the documentary, ”Kinderblock 66: Return to Buchenwald,” will be presented at 6 p.m. in the Global Heritage Hall Building, Room G01, at the University’s Bristol campus, 1 Old Ferry Road. RWU Adjunct Professor Rabbi Ben Lefkowitz and Rob Cohen, Director of Kinderblock66, will present this film.
This series explores representations of the Jewish experience in Israel and of the Holocaust through three recent films (2011 and 2012 short and documentary films). The series culminates with a talk by Professor Jeffrey Shandler of Rutgers University, who will examine how the Holocaust has been viewed on American television from the 1950s through the mid-1990. This series has been made possible through a partnership with FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival and sponsored by the Edwin S. Soforenko Foundation and the Helene and Bertram Bernhardt Foundation, and the Roger Williams University Department of Communication, Hillel, and Spiritual Life Program.
