GI JEWS: JEWISH AMERICANS IN WORLD WAR II

Presented by JCC FilmFest & The Dallas Jewish Historical Society. 

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
1:00PM @ THE AARON FAMILY JCC
$13 JCC MEMBER | $16 NON-MEMBER

This fascinating documentary tells the extraordinary experiences of the 550,000 Jewish American men and women who fought in World War II. In their own words, veterans both famous and unknown (from Hollywood director Mel Brooks to former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger) bring their war experiences to life. They narrate how they fought for their nation and their brethren in Europe, while at the same time struggling with anti-Semitism within their ranks. After years of struggle, they emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish.

TWENTY-SIX SECONDS: A PERSONAL HISTORY OF THE ZAPRUDER FILM

Presented by JCC FilmFest & The Dallas Jewish Historical Society. 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2018
7:00PM @ THE AARON FAMILY JCC
$10 IN ADVANCE | $15 AT THE DOOR

Abraham’s granddaughter, Alexandra Zapruder, is ready to tell the complete story for the first time. With the help of the Zapruder family’s exclusive records, memories, and documents, Zapruder tracks the film’s torturous journey through history, all while American society undergoes its own transformation, and a new media-driven consumer culture challenges traditional ideas of privacy, ownership, journalism, and knowledge.

Part biography, part family history, and part historical narrative, Zapruder demonstrates how one man’s unwitting moment in the spotlight shifted the way politics, culture, and media intersect, bringing about the larger social questions that define our age.
