The Presence of Their Absence, a Film for Erev Tisha B’Av

The Presence of Their Absence, a Film for Erev Tisha B’Av

On Saturday, August 10, 7 PM. Service and Film: The Presence of Their Absence, the story of Fred Zaidman, a Los Angeles son of Holocaust survivors, on a journey of discovery to trace his roots and “inherited trauma.” Their will be a talk back and Q & A with the Director, Donna Kanter.

We follow Fred Zaidman on his journey to trace his inherited trauma.  Armed with only scant clues from his late parents who had survived concentration camps in Poland and Germany, Fred ventures into the unknown to tell his story for the first time. With helpers in Poland, at Yad Vashem in Israel, at Bergen-Belsen, Germany – and with an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta who guides him through a cemetery in Poland – Fred finds his roots, unshackles his pain and reconstructs his future. 

Refreshments suitable for the holiday will be served after the service. Free of Charge. The Actors’ Temple, 339 West 47th Street, between 8th & 9th Aves. info@theactorstemple.org or www.theactorstemple.org. 212-245-6975. Everyone is welcome!
