a special screening of Screaming Silence, a groundbreaking film about sexual violence during the Holocaust
Friday, September 28, 2018, 4pm
Pre-Event Reception, 3:30pm
Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute
47-49 E 65th Street (between Park & Madison Avenues)

Followed by a discussion with filmmaker Ronnie Sarnat and Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel, Founder and Executive Director of Remember the Women Institute

"Screaming Silence" shines light on a topic many historians have avoided: sexual violence during the Holocaust. First aired in April 2015, this groundbreaking film includes testimony—shared publicly for the first time -- by Israeli women and men who were sexually abused as children while in Nazi concentration and labor camps. In documenting these stories, the film honors the silenced survivors -- and also helps to combat the shame and stigma surrounding sexual violence that lingers today. Thanks to these courageous individuals who have endured so much, and to this extraordinary film, these stories will not be lost to history.

Following the screening, the filmmaker Ronnie Sarnat was joined in discussion by Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel, Founder and Executive Director of Remember the Women Institute. The conversation was moderated by Jessica Neuwirth, Distinguished Lecturer and Director of the Human Rights Program at Roosevelt House. We hope you will join us for this important screening and conversation.
