200 6th Ave South St. Petersburg, FL

On April 28, 1945, life begins again. As hundreds of Holocaust Survivors from concentration camps arrive in the harbor of Malmö, Sweden, news teams capture and televise their images. Seventy years later, those same Survivors view the archival footage of their arrival to Sweden, re-experiencing the emotions of the day and sharing their stories.

The group of Survivors include Jews from all over Europe, Norwegian prisoners of war, Polish mothers and children, members of the French resistance and British spies – and perhaps unique among them, Elsie Ragusin, a young Italian-American who was visiting her grandparents in Italy when she was accused of being a spy and deported to Auschwitz. As the Survivors study the images, they are surprised to recognize family members, friends and themselves, sparking personal and shocking revelations about the war.

After the film, director Magnus Gertten and Survivor Elsie Ragusin will speak.

This program is free and open to the public.

Presented by The FHM in partnership with the White Bus For Better Futures Program and The University of South Florida St. Petersburg, with additional support provided by the Jack Chester Foundation.
