Please join us for a special film screening of Scandal in Ivansk.
Most of the Jews in the Polish town of Ivansk were killed by the Nazis, and the headstones in the Jewish cemetery were plundered for construction purposes. The film chronicles a group of descendants of Ivansk Jews who restore the town's cemetery, retrieving what headstones they can. When they commission a plaque that includes the word "collaborator," a national scandal is unleashed. This eye-opening documentary strives to understand why much of the nation won't accept "collaborator" to describe Polish people who aided the Nazis and benefitted from the genocide of Jews.
Marta Eichelberger, OJMCHE's new Holocaust Educator will lead a brief Q&A after the film.
Sponsored by Bincha's Fund of OJMCHE in memory of Bincha Nozyczka and in partnership with Never Again Coalition and PSU's Holocaust and Genocide Studies Project.
