Pleasant Dreams

A One-Man Performance by Robin Hirsch

Yom Ha Shoah: Holocaust Remembrance Day
Commemoration
Sunday, April 19, 2009
8:00 p.m.
Mead Memorial Chapel

Robin Hirsch is a writer and performer, and the owner of the Cornelia Street Cafe in Greenwich Village where he produces some 700 shows a year. In 1996, a year after the publication of his Holocaust-related memoir, Last Dance at The Hotel Kempinski, he was visited in his cafe by the director of the Berlin Jewish Festival, who invited him to perform. Pleasant Dreams traces the complicated journey which this visit set in motion, a journey back through the grave, through many graves, to the city where his family first saw life. It is one of the stories in his current memoir-in-progress, The Whole World Passes Through - what happens to a wandering Jew when he finally stands still and opens the door? The door may open, all sorts of celebrities and civilians may pass through, but the shadow of a larger history still looms.

Robin Hirsch was born in London during the Blitz to German Jews who had fled Hitler. He is a former Oxford, Fulbright and English-Speaking Union Scholar who has acted, directed, taught and published on both sides of the Atlantic.

"Rescuers During the Holocaust: Their Challenge to Citizens Today"

Lecture and film screening by Pierre Sauvage

Wednesday, November 5, 2008
7:00 p.m.
Dana Auditorium

A child survivor of the Holocaust and an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Pierre Sauvage is the President of the Chambon Foundation, which he founded in 1982. His 1989 documentary “Weapons of the Spirit,” explored the French village of Le Chambon during the Nazi occupation, where 5,000 Jews were shelter by 5,000 Christians. Sauvage and his parents were among the rescued. The Chambon Foundation was the first nonprofit educational foundation committed to communicating the necessary and challenging lessons of hope intertwined with the Holocaust’s unavoidable lessons of despair. Mr. Sauvage is currently working on a documentary about Varian Fry, an American teacher and journalist who traveled to France in August 1940 on behalf of the Emergency Rescue Committee with the assignment of bringing some 200 well-known intellectuals in imminent danger of arrest (including Marc Chagall and Max Ernst) to safety in the United States. Fry left only when deported by French authorities. He was posthumously awarded the first annual Rohatyn Global Humanitarian Award this past May.
