“As If It Were Yesterday” Screening and Q&A

January 30 , 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

To honor acts of loving-kindness and to mark the film’s 40th anniversary, BJ presents a screening of the award-winning documentary film, As If It Were Yesterday/Comme Si C’etait Hier (1980), by Myriam Abramowicz and Esther Hoffenberg. There will also be a Q&A with Myriam Abramowicz, led by Professor Lenore Weitzman.

As If It Were Yesterday documents the little-known courage of the Belgian people who, during the Nazi occupation of Belgium, hid and placed over 4,000 Jewish children, saving them from arrest, deportation, and extermination. Individuals and government agencies mobilized around this purpose, and in so doing became ‘outlaws’ themselves. The film inspired the creation of the Hidden Child Foundation (1991).
