Film Screening | “The Survivor”

WEB The Survivor

After surviving years of being forced to fight fellow inmates in death matches at Auschwitz, Harry Haft attempts to rebuild his life with what fragments are left. Plagued with survivors guilt and PTSD, Harry makes a small living by boxing in New York City following the Holocaust. In an attempt to find a lost lover from before the war, Harry organizes one last heavily publicized fight as a way to let those that he had been separated from know that he had survived. Ben Foster stars in this Emmy-nominated film about survival, healing, and redemption.

Following the film will be a short talkback with Harry’s son, Alan, about the life of his father, and the legacy of remembering those who survived the Shoah.
