Documentary Film Screening I “Repairing the World: Stories from the Tree of Life”
November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center for our annual Kristallnacht Commemoration, featuring a candle lighting and screening of the Not in Our Town documentary “Repairing the World: Stories from the Tree of Life” at historic Union Terminal.
Repairing the World: Stories from the Tree of Life documents Pittsburgh’s powerful community response to hate in the aftermath of the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history. Through the voices of survivors, family members, diverse Pittsburgh residents and leaders, the film shows unity in a moment of crisis, the resilience of a vibrant city, and a community working together to understand what it means to be “stronger than hate.”
Following the documentary, join us for a conversation between former Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh Executive Director Lauren Bairnsfather, who appears in the film, and documentary executive producer Patrice O’Neill, founder and co-director of Not in Our Town. Bairnsfather will discuss the historical context of Kristallnacht and the perpetuation of anti-Jewish violence today.
