GRS is thrilled to co-sponsor a fascinating live discussion with film star Jesse Eisenberg and directors Jonathan & Claudine Jakubowicz about the film Resistance.
The movie is based on the incredible true story of legendary mime Marcel Marceau’s work with the French Resistance to save tens of thousands of orphans during the Holocaust.
Long before he rose to international fame as a mime, Marcel Marceau put his fledgling career as an artist on hold to spirit Jewish refugee children out of Nazi-occupied France, even as his own father was murdered at Auschwitz. Watch the trailer here.
The film is available on demand from Amazon, Apple, and other platforms.
The event co-sponsored by area synagogues and presented in partnership with
IFC Films and Tamar Simon from Mean Streets Management. An RSVP is required to attend this free event; a suggested donation of $18 to the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center is greatly appreciated.
