How the Light Gets In: Journeys of Transformation
One by One Dialogue Between Descendants of the Holocaust and the Nazi Regime
Tuesday, April 5, 2011, 6:30 p.m.
Free to all
Presented by the Florida Holocaust Museum and the Generations After Committee
Renate Greenfield, daughter of Holocaust survivors, and Martina Emme, daughter and grandaughter of Nazi perpetrators, will participate in a one on one dialog, sharing their individual stories about how the Holocaust affected their upbringing. They will tell of surprising insights of the similar circumstances that existed on both sides. They first met in 2009 at a week-long dialog in Berlin, Germany when members of the generation after the Holocaust met to discuss the generation of fear and shame that experts predict will take
seven generations to heal.
A movie trailer about a documentary filmed during the week-long dialog in Germany will be shown.
Sponsored in part by the Tampa Jewish Federation.
The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children
who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The Museum is dedicated to teaching members of all races and
cultures to recognize the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides.
