(MAHWAH, NJ) – Director Rob Cohen and Executive Producer Steven Moskovic will screen and lead a discussion of their film, Kinderblock 66, at Ramapo College of New Jersey on Tuesday, September 30 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Trustees Pavilion. The College’s Gross Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies and Communication Arts’ Cinematheque Series are co-sponsors.

The film centers around four survivors, including Moskovic’s father, who survived the horrors of Kinderblock 66, a section of the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. The section was designated for the roughly 2,000 teenage boys and young men who were separated from their families and sent to the camp.

Video recordings from when the survivors returned for the 65th anniversary of Buchenwald’s liberation and archival footage provide a window into their ordeal and their lives before and after the Holocaust. The film also tells the remarkable story of the boys’ rescuer, Czech Communist political prisoner Antonin Kalina. He and his fellow prisoners helped to place the boys and young men in a special barrack, far away from the main part of Buchenwald.

The screening and presentation are free and open to the public. For more information or to reserve a seat, please call 201.684.7409.
