Join us on April 23rd for our Yom Hashoah Holocaust Remembrance Event
In observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day, on April 23rd at 1:00PM,, The Maine Jewish Film Festival presents the film “The Silenced Walls”
In the Parisian suburb of Drancy lies an unadorned block of low-income housing. With some of the cheapest rents in the Paris region, it is the residence of 500 impoverished retirees, recently homeless and mentally disabled. On the surface everything seems normal, but this building is also France’s most notorious Holocaust site. Through moving interviews with Holocaust survivors and fascinating archival footage, this film offers a compassionate look inside the walls of this housing project and raises important questions about the existence of this building. (Documentary, 52 min.)
