Learning Through Experience: The Shoah Ambassadors
This one-hour documentary film, Shoah Ambassadors, bridges the chasm of today’s younger generation with that of the Holocaust generation through a unique and creative journey that two young non-Jewish individuals go on. Over the two-year production, through both song and art, the ambassadors Hailey Callahan and Curtis Bates take a deep personal dive into the atrocities of the Holocaust and WWII. There will be a Q&A following this film with the director, Keith Famie, where we can hear more about the project and learn how people of different ages, backgrounds, and experiences can come together to open hearts and minds.
