Born in Zakroczym, Poland in 1927, Holocaust Survivor Joe Engel was taken by the Nazi’s at 14 and never saw his parents again. Now 90 years old, Joe is the embodiment of living history and spends his retirement years ensuring the Holocaust is never forgotten.
From the overwhelming despair of the Warsaw Ghetto, to the shroud of unceasing death and suffering that was Birkenau and Auschwitz, to his escape from a Death Train at 17 and his covert work as a freedom fighter, Joe personally takes us on his vivid journey to hell and back.
This is a story of faith, renewal and redemption. Joe Engel, with an unwavering will to live, overcame unimaginable horrors to become a treasured citizen, community leader and philanthropist.
Film Producer/Director Ron Small, Survivor Joe Engel, and College of Charleston student Samantha Krantz provide additional insights following this exclusive screening. Charleston School of Law Professor Nancy Zisk will speak about: “The Rule of Law: A Legal Perspective on Lessons of the Holocaust.”
Proceeds benefit the Charleston Jewish Federation’s REMEMBER Program for Holocaust Education and Genocide Awareness and Synagogue Emanu-El’s Holocaust Education Fund.
From legendary character actor Stephen Tobolowsky—who currently appears on The Goldbergs, HBO’s Silicon Valley, and Norman Lear’s new One Day at a Time, author of The Dangerous Animals Club and The Tobolowsky Files podcast—My Adventures with God is a funny, introspective collection about love, catastrophe, and triumph, all told through the lens of his evolving relationship with the mystery that is “God.”
As Tobolowsky explains, “It’s hard to believe in nothing. Even cats believe in suppertime. As much as we love certainty, we are often shaped by the invisible, the unexplainable—something we call faith. We are inclined to acknowledge the holy. Even if it is only a paper heart we find in an old suitcase.”
