Survivor documentary to be screened in New Brunswick
A free screening of the documentary, “Margit: Not A23029,” which focuses on the life of Holocaust survivor Margit Feldman of Somerset, will be held Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. at George Street Playhouse, New Brunswick.
The film, presented in conjunction with the Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Raritan Valley Community College, Branchburg, was created and directed by filmmaker Harry Hillard, an adjunct associate professor of film at RVCC; its producer is Peppy Margolis, RVCC’s director of community programs.
The 25-minute film focuses on Feldman, a Holocaust survivor from Hungary who immigrated to the United States by herself after the war. A charter member of the NJ Commission on Holocaust Education since its inception in 1971, Feldman was one of the founders of RVCC’s Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies 36 years ago.
The film is narrated by Dr. Michael Berenbaum, one of the country’s leading historians on the Holocaust. Historical footage was provided by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The event will include a question-and-answer session with Feldman and Hillard; a dessert reception will follow.
