Join local author, Avrom Bendavid-Val (The Heavens are Empty), who will use slides, readings and music to tell the story of Trochenbrod, a fascinating story in the history of Eastern European Jewry and Jewish history. Books will be available for purchase/signing. Leads up to the 11/9 screening of his documentary film about Trochenbrod (“Lost Town”). Fee; registration (www.bethami.org).
“Lost Town” is a documentary film using footage, still photos, animation and original music to tell the story of Trochenbrod and Avrom Bendavid Val’s efforts to bring its story to light. Trochenbrod was the only all-Jewish town to ever exist outside of Palestine, all of whose 5,000 Jews were obliterated by the Nazis (except for 33 townspeople who escaped the massacre).This personal search of Avrom’s triggers a resurgence of interest in the town and reconnects the few remaining survivors, who hadn’t seen each other in over 60 years. Fee; registration (www.bethami.org).
