Judaic Studies To Celebrate 25-Year Anniversary

On Sunday, Sept. 12 an exclusive screening will take place of the documentary “Songs of My Father,” a moving story depicting director Tomas Hasler’s search for his radical father who had been captured by Nazis during WWII in Czechoslovakia.

Hasler will be attending the screening to speak about the film itself as well as his real-life experiences in the search for the father he had never met.

This exclusive film screening and discussion will be part of the Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies’ twenty-fifth anniversary event.
Other events during Sunday’s program will include a unique Czech cabaret music performance by Hartt’s very own Katie Child.

On top of the entertainment for the day, sophomore Judaic Studies major, Eric Maurer, will be presented with the 2010-2011 Jerome Caplan Memorial Scholarship.

The day will be wrapped up with the re-opening of the exhibition Freedom is Never Free: Norway and the Jews, an exhibit in Mortensen Library.
Sunday’s program will be free and open to the public, and commence at 1:30 p.m. in Wilde Auditorium.
