Sterne Screening in Honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day 

Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 7:00 pm, Rodef Shalom (4905 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)

The Holocaust Center, in partnership with the Carnegie Mellon Department of Modern Languages and Rodef Shalom, is marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a special screening of Sterne (Stars). The East German film is a gripping drama about a sergeant in the Wehrmacht and how his life is changed by the establishment of a transit camp for Jews arriving from Greece.

Sterne, which won the 1959 Special Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes International Film Festival, is a linguistic triumph, speaking to the diversity of Jewish victims of the Holocaust. The film features dialog in Bulgarian, German, Greek, and Ladino; because English subtitles were not completed until 1999, the film has gained new life in the 21st century. Tickets are $10. Learn More and Register!
