Yom HaShoah Movie & Panel Discussion: Try To Remember – Never Forget
April 28th, 6:00 p.m.
Our Yom HaShoah event will feature the premiere screening of Try To Remember – Never Forget, a movie about the life of Holocaust survivor Ruth Goldshmiedova Sax, z’’l, followed by a panel discussion with the film’s creator/director Olena Zernychenko, along with author Sandra Scheller, Sax’s daughter and author of the biography on which the documentary was based, and Lawrence Baron, Professor Emeritus of History at San Diego State whose specialty is Holocaust films.
Additional info about Ruth Sax, who passed away at the end of 2018:
A survivor of three Nazi concentration camps, Ruth Goldschmiedova Sax dedicated her life by speaking to students and adults about her Holocaust experience. She reminded everyone that HATE is never the answer and to embrace diversity. Ruth always said that G-d created such a beautiful life, only some people make it so miserable. She reminded everyone that the Holocaust can never be forgotten and to treat everyone with respect and love. Ruth did this all from her wheelchair.
Try To Remember Never Forget, a biography of Sax by her daughter Sandra Scheller, recounts her dramatic and courageous life. The book won the best documentary award at the Multicultural Motion Pictures Awards in February 2018. Ruth was named Mother of the Year by Senator Ben Hueso, won the Art 4 Peace Award in Beverly Hills, was the Grand Marshal just last year for Bonita Fest, received her honorary degree from Southwestern College in Education and Humanities and at the age of 90 had her Bat Mitzvah because she didn’t have this opportunity in the concentration camps. The book is available on Amazon at this link.
Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the program.
