    A documentary film entitled Soul Witness, The Brookline Holocaust Witness Project, will be screened on Thursday, January 26 at 7:00 pm at the Coolidge Corner Theater, one day before International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The film features a collection of interviews of local Holocaust survivors conducted in the early 1990s.   The evening will include a video tribute to Regina Barshak and Leon Satenstein who were Brookline residents (they have since passed away). Barshak, who was a witness to the Holocaust, and Satenstein, who saw the liberation of the concentration camps during World War II, founded the original interview project in the late 1980s.  Following the film, Adam Strom of Facing History and Ourselves will moderate a question and answer period with writer, director and producer R. Harvey Bravman and Professor of English Emeritus at Simmons College Lawrence Langer on the making of the film and conducting the original interviews.  Tickets to the special screening are available on the Coolidge Corner Theatre website: http://www.coolidge.org/films/soul-witness-brookline-holocaust-witness-project

    The documentary is intended for a general audience with an advisory for children under 13.
