Now Streaming Discussion: “Aimée & Jaguar” Tuesday, June 23 | 7:00 PM | Zoom
In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, HHC’s June Now Streaming Discussion will be on Aimée & Jaguar (1999), a German film that focuses on the love between two women in Nazi Germany. Based on the book Aimée & Jaguar: A Love Story, Berlin 1943 by Erica Fischer, it is a cinematic interpretation of the true story of Lilly Wust and Felice Schragenheim. Felice is a Jewish woman, and Lilly is a mother of four married to a Nazi officer. We will discuss both the film and the history on which it is based. The film is currently streaming for free on Tubi. Register Here to join the discussion with HHC’s Director of Education & Engagement, Jodi Elowitz.
