Holocaust Survivor Documentary and Presentation by Survivors Daughter
More than 65 years after the Holocaust, hatred, antisemitism, and genocide still threaten our world. The life stories of Holocaust survivors transcend the decades and remind us of the constant need to be vigilant citizens and to stop injustice, prejudice, and hatred wherever and whenever they occur.
Descendants of the Holocaust are today’s voices for education and action, and an invaluable source to understanding this complex history and its lasting effect on the world. Speakers provide family testimony to instill the impact on their families into Holocaust history.
Come hear and watch Laura’s family (Ackos Family) story of survival.
This film reveals an ancient Jewish culture through the eyes of one Minnesota family that survived the Holocaust in Greece. Through testimony by the Ackos Family, this memoir tells the compelling story of how this culture was almost wiped off the map during World War II. It’s a story you have never heard before.
Laura will be presenting along with a showing of the film.
