‘The Last of the Polish Jews’ screening

Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 7 p.m. School of Cinematic Arts, Ray Stark Family Theatre (SCA 108)

Made by filmmaker/poet/musician Fred Engelberg in the wake of a campaign to force all Jews out of Poland and then lost for decades, The Last of the Polish Jews (1971) follows Jews who fled Poland to Copenhagen via an off-season hotel boat. A screening of the film will be followed by a conversation about today’s global refugee crises with USC Annenberg professor Roberto Suro; USC Gould School of Law Immigrants and Migration Initiative director Eliane Fersan; and Arthur Alexander, one of the exiled Polish Jews.

Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative.
