NANA Screening followed by Q&A with Director Serena Dykman

title: NANA Screening followed by Q&A with Director Serena Dykman
description: Serena Dykman retraces her grandmother’s Auschwitz survival story, and investigates how her life-long fight against intolerance can continue to be taught to new generations, against the backdrop of current events. Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant, born in Poland, survived Ravensbruck, Malchow, and Auschwitz, where she was the forced translator of the “Angel of Death”, Dr. Mengele. She dedicated her post-war life to publicly speaking of her survival to the young generations, so that it would never be forgotten or repeated. Alice and Serena, her daughter and granddaughter, explore how Maryla’s fight against intolerance can continue today, in a world where survivors are disappearing, and intolerance, racism and antisemitism are on the rise.
