Temple Sinai Adult Education presents a screening of the new film “Andre’s Lives,” followed by a discussion with director Brad Lichtenstein.
Reaching beyond conventional portrayals of the Holocaust’s legacy, “Andre’s Lives” explores the tension between the collective obligation to remember and the personal need to forget. Dubbed “the Jewish Schindler,” Bauhaus-trained architect Andre Steiner saved thousands of Slovak Jews. The last surviving member of the secret and illegal Jewish “Working Group” in Slovakia, Andre helped save over 7,000 people from deportation to Auschwitz (almost six times as many as Schindler).
