Soul Witness, a work in progress documentary film by R. Harvey Bravman returns to the Coolidge after its well-received sold out Movie House 1 screening earlier this year.

The documentary includes footage from approximately 80 hours of video interviews conducted by the Town of Brookline between 1990-1996 of residents who witnessed the Holocaust. Witnesses describe their lives before the war, growing intolerance, their lives during the war and the affect their experiences still had on them at the time of the interviews. Some of these witnesses survived death camps, some hid, others fought in resistance movements and many saved the lives of others.


The event will also feature:

•    Video tribute to Regime Barshak and Leon Satenstein, founders of the Brookline Holocaust Memorial Project.

•    Q&A sponsored by Facing History and Ourselves with Producer/Director R. Harvey Bravman, Brookline Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Lloyd Gellineau and family members of the witnesses featured in the film
