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.

NEW FAMILY WELCOME POINT PERSON:
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
