The Last Days
This stunning film by Stephen Spielberg about the last days of the Hungarian Jews will be shown and discussed by Mr. Holden. Why did Hungary give up its Jews so late in the war, and how were the approximately last 400K Hungarian Jews murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz? Personal stories, and reflections abound in this very moving film. There will be frequent pauses for discussion.
