Presented by Gurwin Jewish’s Assisted Living Community in partnership with HJC & the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center. In 1942, five Jewish families escaped in to a muddy hole in the ground to hide from the Nazis. These 38 men, women, and children were determined to keep their families alive and avoid capture in Southwestern Ukraine, a region where less than 5 percent of all Jews survived the Holocaust. Their harrowing story was unearthed by accident when cave explorer, Chris Nicola, stumbled upon remnants left behind. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to meet Chris and hear about his unbelievable underground discovery. Post-film panel discussion to include Chris Nicola, Beth Lilach, Education Director from HMTC & a very special guest panelist who will share her personal cave survival story. Suggested donation: $25/adult $18/student. Open Seating. Refreshments served. Click here for flyer.
