FILM PREVIEW AND ARTIST PANEL

January 13 @ 7:00 pm

Write Me (2019; 7 mins.) follows a Holocaust survivor and a survivor of human trafficking regaining power over their bodies by removing physical evidence of “branding.” Write Me is adapted from the poem, “After Auschwitz,” by Deborah Kahan Kolb, and premieres at New York Jewish Film Festival. The preview screening will be followed by a discussion with director Pearl Gluck, poet Deborah Kahan Kolb, composer Lisa Gutkin, Auschwitz survivor Shirley Gottesman, trafficking survivor Barbara Freeman and tattoo artist Virginia Elwood. The free evening is part of a series to engage audiences in conversations on art, social justice, and history. Write Me programs are made possible through a community partnership with the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust and the Battery Park City Authority.
