“Facing Arthur” follows the extraordinary relationship between a young German volunteer of Action Reconciliation Service for Peace who is the grandson of a soldier in Hitler’s Wehrmacht, and a 101 year-old Holocaust Survivor who is too frail to leave his apartment. Before he was forced from his native Poland in 1938, Arthur Lederman was a renowned concert violinist. Christopher Erbsloeh is a budding cellist. From their first painful conversations, they discover that while history is unchangeable, they share a passion for music and art that transcends their differences and generations.
Action Reconciliation Service for Peace is an organization that for 50 years has been committed to working toward reconciliation and peace, as well as fighting racism, discrimination and social exclusion.
There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend. To RSVP in advance, contact Deborah Lom at (516) 471-8040 or email@example.com.
HMTC’s film series was established in honor of David Taub (1932-2010), a Holocaust Survivor and respected friend of the Center.
