Subject : “Numbered”
Detail : Auschwitz prisoners were denied their names and tattooed with numbers. In this engrossing film, survivors discuss what the numbers mean to them: a tattoo is a sign of shame, a badge of honor or something else entirely? “Today, it is a sign of prestige; I have a number. It gives me a kind of superiority,” says one survivor. Another will not wear short sleeves. A daughter has her father’s number tattooed to her ankle as a sign of remembrance and solidarity with her deceased father; a grandson takes his grandfather’s number as a sign of survival and continuity. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $8 for members of Holocaust Museum Houston; the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston; and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; seniors (65+) and students.
