Holocaust Survivor Film Showing

leo ullmanGalloway, N.J. _  A Telly-award winning file about a Holocaust survivor, produced by  Stockton University instructor Toby Rosenthal, will be shown at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 on Zoom, followed by a panel discussion with the survivor, Leo Ullman.

The film, “They Were Good People …. Doing Extraordinary Deeds” tells the story of Leo Ullman and his family, who were hidden by non-Jewish families in the Netherlands during World War II. The film highlights the risks taken by non-Jewish families to help their neighbors even at great risk to themselves.

Rosenthal, a resident of Margate, will participate on the panel discussion. The film is featured as part of the Holocaust Rescuers Exhibition at the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton University.  It received seven awards from the 41st Telly Awards Judging Council in June.

The Stockton Communication Studies Speaker Spotlight is sponsored in cooperation with the Stockton History Club and Historical Studies Program.

Those interested in participating can contact the Stockton Holocaust Resource Center at 609 625-4699 or email Gail.Rosenthal@stockton.edu to register for the Zoom link.
