Mercer County Holocaust Center Invites Community to Viewing of Documentary “Children of Terror” Jan. 31

Princeton Online Announcement

The Mercer County Holocaust-Genocide Resource Center (MCHGRC) invites the community to an open house and the screening of the documentary film “Children of Terror” on Thursday, Jan. 31.  The doors open at 6 p.m.  The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A with the producer, Rider University Professor Dr. Shawn Kildea.  The event is presented free of charge.

The center is located on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College, 1200 Old Trenton Road, on the second floor of the Library Building (next to the college bookstore).  

Based on the 2009 book of the same name, the film combines the stories of two Holocaust survivors.  Inge Auerbacher, a German Jew, survived Terezin, a Nazi concentration camp located in what is now the Czech Republic, while Bozenna Gilbride, a Catholic Pole, survived Chemnitz, a Nazi work camp in Germany.  The film focuses on the interfaith relationship these two women forged in spite of the resistance to their friendship from some within their own communities.

For more information, contact the MCHGRC at 609-570-3355 or email mcholgen@gmail.com.
