OCTOBER 15-17 – Traveling to Denver area schools in October, The Last Flight of Petr Ginz is a film about an extraordinary young Jewish boy from Prague who perished in the Holocaust. The film is in large part based on Petr’s diary, which was mysteriously discovered 60 years after it was written. Dr. Terry Hynes, former dean of University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications, will join this year’s program to share with students her experience researching and producing the film.
Through the Miryam Brand Holocaust Education Film Project, the Mizel Museum brings to life the universal lessons of the Holocaust in an ongoing effort to help ensure that such tragedies never happen again. The 2013 program will travel to seven middle and high schools in the Denver metro area, reaching more than 2,000 students. If your school would like to participate in this year’s program please email Deanne Kapnik or call (303) 749-5019.
