COMMEMORATING KRISTALLNACHT: 1945 Film Screening

In partnership with AJC Westchester/Fairfield and The Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County.

On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk's son. The townspeople – suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning – expect the worst and behave accordingly. The town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village's deported Jews and expects them to demand their illegally acquired property back. A superb ensemble cast and lustrous black and white cinematography contribute to an eloquent drama that paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with the recent horrors they’ve experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain.

Followed by an AJC Westchester/Fairfield sponsored high level, post-screening discussion with Máté Vincze, Consul for Cultural Affairs at the Hungarian Consulate in New York.
