Remembering the Holocaust


BRATTLEBORO — Windham World Affairs Council presents a screening of "Were The House Still Standing" on Friday at 118 Elliot.

The screening is free and open to the public. There will be coffee, tea and conversation at 7 p.m., and the presentation begins at 7:30 p.m.

"Were The House Still Standing: Maine Survivors and Liberators Remember the Holocaust" is a multi-media project which weaves together the testimony of 16 survivors and liberators who rebuilt their lives in the state of Maine. This project, on permanent display at the Michael Klahr Center, the permanent home of the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine in Augusta, is the creation of Robert Katz, currently a professor of art at the University of Maine at Augusta. In addition to the showing of the film, Katz will present a talk about family remembrance and the Holocaust.
