Subject : “The Flat”
Detail : When Israeli director Arnon Goldfinger’s grandmother Gerda Tuchler died at 98, she left behind a flat filled with books, works of art, photographs and memorabilia. His findings lead him to explore his grandparents’ history, including a long-term friendship with a Nazi officer that survives the war. Zionists traveling with Nazis to Palestine? Unbelievable, and yet, it happened. The relationship was unknown to the family, nor were many other aspects of the Tuchlers’ history until Goldfinger contacted people who knew his grandparents, reviewed archives and traveled to Germany in an attempt to understand their story.

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.
