Solas Nua's Irish film series and NYU Washington, D.C., will present the U.S. premiere of “Condemned to Remember” on October 5. In Emmy Award-winning director Gerry Gregg’s third film about Irish Holocaust survivor Tomi Reichental, the 83-year-old continues his mission to tell the world about what happened to him and his family in wartime Slovakia. In his journey across Europe, Reichental connects with Muslim refugees who have faced the kind of cruelty and persecution he remembers vividly from childhood. For Tomi, their fate and the rise of extreme nationalism all across Europe evokes echoes of the darkest days of his life under the jackboot of the Nazis and their collaborators.
Gerry Gregg, Tomi Reichental, and American Auschwitz Survivor Irene Weiss joined the discussion after the film.
