Congregation Jeshuat Israel cordially invites you to a Kristallnacht commemoration, a screening of “Remembering Dokshitsy,” a documentary short film directed by Michele Vlakov.

“A moving story, well told.”
—Dan Kimmel, film critic

The film highlights the efforts of Aaron Ginsburg as he helped a local government restore a Jewish cemetery and preserve the memory of Dokshitsy, Parafianov and other villages in Belarus. Hear the story of how he brought together a local in Belarus and a worldwide network of descendants to dedicate a memorial to this Jewish community and to correct a 1965 Holocaust memorial that denied the Holocaust by failing to mention that the victims were Jewish.

After the film, Aaron Ginsburg will give a presentation about the story behind this long journey.
