They survived the horrors of the Holocaust and came to America to put the past behind. For decades they kept their awful memories secret, even from their children. But their silence ended when a band of neo-Nazi thugs threatened to march in their quiet village of Skokie, Illinois "because that is where the Jews are."
SURVIVING SKOKIE is an intensely personal documentary by former Skokie resident Eli Adler about the provocative events of the 1970s, their aftermath, his family's horrific experience of the Shoah, and a journey with his father to confront long-suppressed memories.
Eli Adler and his father Jack will attend the screening and answer questions following the film. www.survivingskokiemovie.org
Cost $10 in advance, $12 at the door
Survivors attend free of charge but must place a ticket order online.
