West Hollywood, CA 90038
In observance of Yom Hashoa, Holocaust Memorial Day, Kol Ami will host and co-sponsor with the Israel Civic Action Network a showing of the award-winning movie J’accuse by Michael Kretzmer. The film is about Holocaust denial in Lithuania and features Kol Ami's friend, Grant Gochin, and his efforts to confront the Lithuanian government.
The Lithuanian Jewish community was decimated in the Holocaust, when over 220,000 Jews, more than 95% of the Jewish population, were murdered. A key player in the massacre was Lithuanian nationalist Jonas Noreika, who today is revered as a national hero, and protected by the contemporary government’s official policy and infamous Lithuanian Genocide and Resistance Research Centre. In this galvanizing documentary, we follow the experiences of two dissident campaigners: Grant Gochin, whose family was murdered by Noreika; and Silvia Foti, a brave Lithuanian woman fighting for the truth, whose grandfather was Jonas Noreika. Together, the two push against Lithuania’s systemic Holocaust denial in an attempt to bring justice to victims and insist that the truth be told.
