Journey to Freedom Documentary

“Journey to Freedom” documents the work of Portuguese diplomat Sousa Mendes who saved thousands of Jews in the early days of WW II. Amongst those saved were ten relatives of Hemlock’s own Corinne Zimmerman. Travel with Corinne on this virtual tour through France, Spain and Portugal, retracing the footsteps of Aristides de Sousa Mendes and the people he saved. Film-maker Tanja Dammertz filmed them on this physical and emotional journey, producing a documentary entitled “Saved By Sousa.” We will watch the video* together, listen to the panelists and discuss the film. Director Dammertz will be joined by Corinne Zimmerman, who went on that journey; Heidi Omlor a Holocaust educator who led the trip. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Shulamit Reinharz.
