India: Holocaust Film Festival planned

Dr. Navras Jaat Aafreedi is planning a Holocaust film festival in Lucknow, India, and he's asking for your help as to suggestions and donations for the event. Films will be shown at various institutions in the city.

He writes;


I plan to organize a Series of Holocaust Film Screenings in Lucknow, India, at universities, colleges and other educational institutions here. The objective is to make the Indians aware of the great tragedy and to fight the Holocaust denial, common among Muslims here.

I already have in my possession three documentary films (thanks to the munificence of Yad Vashem), namely:

- Outcast: Jewish Persecution in Nazi Germany 1933-1938

- She Was there and She Told Me: The Story of Hannah Bar Yesha

- May Your Memory Be Love: The Story of Ovadia Baruch

If you could donate documentaries or/and feature-films on the Holocaust it would be a great mitzvah, for which I would be most grateful.
He has set up a blog, Open Space Lucknow and will acknowledge contributions. He also asks DVDs to be sent by registered post of courier service.

Email him for more details and to clear titles you may wish to provide for this good cause.
