This Week at the 16th Street J

With Passover in the rear-view mirror this week, things can start getting back to, ahem, regular. Sorry. Couldn’t resist. Here’s just a sample of what’s available this week at the Washington DCJCC:

Monday, April 28

7:30pm–The Screening Room presents: The Last Fighters. This documentary film follows the lives of the last six surviving members of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising fighters. The uprising was the best known and most legendary act of armed Jewish resistance (though not the only one) to the Holocaust. The film follows these old veterans and reveals the legacy of their valor, the weight of history and the personalities beyond the legends. The program is supported by the Helen and Milton Covensky Fund of the Washington DCJCC and will include a post-screening discussion with: Aviva Kempner, co-writer and producer of The Last Partisans of Vilna; Dr. Marsha Rozenblit, Professor of Modern Jewish History at University of Maryland; and Estelle Laughlin, Warsaw Ghetto Survivor.
