Local Jewish filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein and his company, 371 Productions, are creating a virtual reality experience in partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum that tells the story of how a group inside the Warsaw Ghetto, the Oyneg Shabbes, secretly wrote journals and articles documenting their experiences and collected evidence of Jewish life and Nazi atrocities from both within and outside the walls. Join Brad and JMM Education Director Ellie Gettinger online as they discuss this unique collaboration and other upcoming projects.

This program will be presented virtually via Youtube and Facebook. You can also get it delivered to your email by signing up for our e-newsletter here below.
