The Forgotten Ones

29. 01. 2019 18:00 - 20:00

Auditorium OVK, Maiselova 15, Prague

A documentary film that brings to light, for the first time, the Holocaust of the Jewry of former Yugoslavia. German Nazis, Croatian Ustashi, Hungarian Fascists, Bulgarian occupiers, nationalist Serbs, partly Italians, and even the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, all played their different roles in the Holocaust of Yugoslav Jewry.  To the genocide of the Jews, moreover, must be added those of Croatian Serbs and Roma.  This film offers a view of this little-known yet most emblematic chapter in the history of the Shoah. 
The movie will be introduced by Yechiel Bar-Chaim, former director of American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JOINT) for central and Eastern Europe.

How Disabilities Are Viewed in Torah

27. 02. 2019 18:00 - 20:00

Auditorium OVK, Maiselova 15, Prague

We know from Genesis, Chapter One, that God judged all of Creation to be Good.  But what about the prevalence of severe mental and physical impairments?  Are they too part of God’s plan for the Universe?  If so, should we see them as a blessing or a curse? Or might they be part of God’s purpose in some other way? This lecture by Yechiel Bar-Chaim, former director of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JOINT) for Central and Eastern Europe, considers these questions as they are treated in Torah itself and as they are considered in various traditional rabbinical sources.
In English with Czech translation.
Free admission.

Five Evenings with Billy Wilder: Double Indemnity

28. 02. 2019 18:00 - 20:00

Auditorium OVK, Maiselova 15, Prague

First part of the film series by movie historian Alice Aronová will be dedicated to the memories of the early years, which Billy Wilder (1906 – 2002) spent in Europe before his emigration to Hollywood in 1934. This significant filmmaker, scriptwriter and director of Jewish origin with over fifty movies and six Oscar Awards on his account, belonged to the Hollywood elite. The movie Double Identity (USA 1944, 107 min) tells a story of seemingly perfect murder. This master piece among dark thrillers was created based on a true story in cooperation with writers James M. Cain (1982–1997) and Raymond Chandler (1888–1959).
In English with Czech subtitles.
Free admission.
