Facebook: Film Festival: International Holocaust Remembrance Day

On April 28, 1945, survivors of the Nazi terror disembark a ship in Malmö. 70 years later, the same people experience the emotional moment when they each recognize themselves in the archive footage shot on the day of their liberation. Their anonymous faces turn into names, fates, and stories. They remind us that behind every refugee arriving in a harbor today, there is a name, a human being and a story.

We recommend that you start to view the movie at 18.30. The movie will be available for free 24h before and after the event. Link to the movie:

After the screening of the movie, we will host a virtual panel discussion at Zoom where you can join to discuss the movie and the importance of remembering the Holocaust.

The panel discussion starts at 19.50. Link to the panel discussion: Anyone can join and it is free.
