Philadelphia Jewish Film and Media (PJFM) and the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center (HAMEC) are happy to invite all residents of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware to a special online screening of Humanity in Action’s animated short trilogy, ‘Traces: Portraits of Resistance, Survival and Resolve, in Commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2023.
The Streaming On-Demand offer will be open free of charge to PA, NJ, & DE residents from January 28-30, 2023.
Seventy-eight years after the fall of Nazi Germany, the Holocaust stands as a staggering crime against humanity, and the world continues to grapple with the deep void of the millions of souls lost. Yet, in the face of unfathomable horror, fleeting moments of bravery and generosity remind us of our capacity for courage and compassion even under the most harrowing circumstances.
As we push deeper into the 21st century, humanity faces an inflection point: the last survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and the Second World War leave us, taking with them their personal memories of one of humanity’s darkest chapters. It is incumbent upon us to safeguard their stories and lessons learned at such tremendous expense. The Traces trilogy brings three such histories to life and to new audiences.
PJFM shares, celebrates, and advances Jewish storytelling through film and new media programs in Philadelphia and beyond. The organization is at the forefront of technology trends and developments, offering artists, content creators, and the community at large unique opportunities to engage and connect.
