How can we talk about the toughest parts of our history with our children? To mark Yom haShoah this unique intergenerational family program presents the award winning 2012 short film, A Journey with Purpose, which documents three generations of the Becker family on their return to Auschwitz-Birkenau. We will be joined by the film maker, Gail Becker, and her son Joshua, as well as the organization Facing History and Ourselves.

“I wanted Joshua to hear from his grandfather what happened there and to see, firsthand, where it happened. It wasn’t just history. It was his history.”
- Gail Becker
