Description

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day this year, Remembering Srebrenica and Solihull School welcome you to the British premiere of the highly acclaimed documentary Condemned to Remember, that will be screened in Solihull School’s Bushell Hall, on 26 January 2018.

The subject of the film Tomi Reichental, Gerry Gregg, the film maker, and survivors from Bosnia-Herzegovina will travel to discuss their stories and the making of the film with our audience.

Condemned to Remember depicts an epic journey across a Europe in the throes of political, economic and social turmoil. Through the prism of the experiences of an 82 year old Holocaust survivor “who has seen all there is to see” the tumultuous story of contemporary Europe unfolds.

Visiting Germany, Poland, and Slovakia, Tomi Reichental maps the devastating plight of Jewish communities, visiting sites of atrocities and investigating the scale of the local collaboration and “collusion” with the Nazi extermination project. Tomi also observes the rise of the neo fascist “The Peoples Party-Our Slovakia”.

In Bosnia- Herzegovina Tomi prays at the site of another war crime – the mass murder of 8,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in July 1995. There he meets with Hasan Hasanović and Dr Fatima Dautbašić-Klempic, survivors of the genocide. Like Tomi, they still search for justice, and for the bones of their loved ones.

Condemned to Remember is directed by renowned Emmy-winning film maker, Gerry Gregg, and is a Praxis Pictures Production in association with RTÉ.

The film will be screened at 6.30pm on Friday, 26th January 2018, followed by a Q&A session that will last until approximately 8.45pm.

Tickets for unassigned seats are allocated free of charge, on a first-come first-served basis.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you.
