Jewish Film Series presents insightful German film
The Ninth Annual Jewish Film Series continues on Wednesday, March 30th, with Labyrinth of Lies, Germany’s entry into the 2016 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film.
The movie takes place in Germany from 1958 to 1963 when the prevailing attitude about the Nazi past was willful amnesia and denial.
A new West Germany is being built amid the refuse of the old. The next generation of Germans is creating a new life for themselves. They don’t know or care about Auschwitz, and their elders prefer it stays that way.
This is a fact-based film based on the 1963-1965 Frankfort Auschwitz trials when twenty-two former Nazis were tried for murder.
The movie will be screened at the Jewish Cultural Center on North Terrace beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7.00 per person and include complimentary popcorn and a soft drink.
