Film Screening & Talk-Back: Numbered
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Auschwitz prisoners were tattooed with serial numbers, first on their chests and then their left arms. An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps; only several thousand survivors are still alive today. The film documents the dark time and setting during which these tattoos were assigned, as well as the meaning they took on in the years following the war. These scars, paradoxically unanimous and anonymous, reveal themselves to be diverse, enlightening, and full of life. A talk-back follows with trauma expert Mae Bennett MSSA, LSW, of the Jewish Family Service Association of Cleveland, a community partner of this program.
Location:
Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
2929 Richmond Road, Beachwood, OH 44122
