Solas Nua to show Close to Evil for Holocaust Remembrance Month
Through the generosity of Praxis Pictures, Irish arts organization Solas Nua invites you to join us for the film, Close to Evil, on April 28th at 7pm at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 10th and G. Documentarian Gerry Gregg follows Irish citizen Tomi Reichental, 79, a survivor of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, as he goes to Germany to meet a former camp guard. Imprisoned by the Nazis at 9, Mr. Reichental had not even shared his story with his sons until after his wife’s death in 2003. He now vows to relate his experience at every opportunity. This beautiful film helps him accomplish his mission, while exploring what it means to endure unspeakable evil. This screening is free and open to the public. Check our Calendar Page for event details.
