After a special screening of the film See You Soon Again, the Brandeis community will have the opportunity to meet the film’s director, Bernadette Wegenstein. The even begins at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 4 at the Wasserman Cinematheque. See the poster for more details.
See You Soon Again is not a Holocaust film. it is a documentary film about how hard it is to tell a story of unspeakable suffering, and how impossible it is not to.
At a prickly ninety years old, Leo Bretholz has a choice. He can continue to tell his story in the Baltimore schools, as he has over two thousand five hundred times since escaping a train bound for Auschwitz, or he can give in to his Holocaust fatigue.
