Clements High School to host Community-Wide Outreach Program February 5
Clements High School will present a community outreach program to explore the pains of prejudice through lessons learned from the Holocaust, on Wednesday, February 5.
This year’s program will spotlight “Rescue in the Philippines,” a critically acclaimed film that documents the rescue of 1,300 Jews from Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II.
Immediately following the film, attendees can participate in a Q&A session with the film’s producer, Barbara Sasser, and Holocaust survivor Ursula Progl. Visitors will also have the opportunity to view “The Shoah,” a multi-media docudrama that examines the Holocaust through the eyes of a little girl and her American liberator, and tour “The Hall of Remembrance,” a 175-foot hallway comprised of creative projects and poignant artwork made by current U.S. History students at Clements.
Following is a schedule of events to be presented:
• Hall of Remembrance viewing – 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (upstairs hallway overlooking library)
• “The Shoah,” multi-media docudrama – 4:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (upstairs lecture hall)
