"Triumph of the spirit" short film and live presentation by Holocaust survivor, Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis
The “Triumph of the Spirit” program will begin with a 22-minute film about Jungreis’s life in the Bergen-Belsen camp. This film is packed with the horrors of the Nazis, yet full of faith, hope and the triumph of the Jewish spirit. Jungreis is a consummate storyteller. Her description of the palpable love and warmth of her family leaps off of the screen and into the hearts of the viewers. This film is a must see for secular, religious, young and old.
Then, in-person, Jungreis will share with us her perspective and approach to the Holocaust, Judaism and life.
Finally, there will be a book-signing and a dessert reception.
