Dear Fredy

June 26 , 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

When the Nazis passed the Nuremberg Laws in 1935, Fredy Hirsch was 19 years old, a German Jew—and openly gay. He was deported to the Terezin Ghetto and then Auschwitz. In Auschwitz, he set up a day care center, where he was much admired, and remained fully “out.” Rubi Gat’s Dear Fredy tells the story of Hirsch’s remarkable life and mysterious death—which happened on the eve of a revolt that never came to pass.

The film will be followed by a post-screening discussion with Michael Simonson (Head of Public Outreach and Archivist at the Leo Baeck Institute).

Free; advance registration recommended.
