Seventy years after the end of WWII, this conference examines global connections in Holocaust education in two distinct ways: by highlighting the personal and professional relationships forged across the globe when researching and memorializing the Shoah and by examining the relationship between Holocaust education and other contemporary and historical issues and events. As the Shoah becomes increasingly distant history with fewer survivors around to tell their stories and share their living memory, conference participants delve into critical questions about the relevance and impact of Holocaust education in today’s world.

Movies can change your life, but can they save it? For most people that probably sounds foolish, but the six brothers featured in the astonishing documentary “The Wolfpack” aren’t most people. For much of their lives, these six ingenious young men used the movies to imaginatively if not physically break out of their Lower Manhattan apartment. Even as their father all but imprisoned them, they made great metaphoric escapes by immersing themselves in the fictional realms created by directors like Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino.
The Angulo brothers — now ages 23 to 16 — made their escapes the way many people do, by watching movies at home on VHS and DVD. But they also recreated favorites like “The Dark Knight” using handmade costumes. For them, movies were a form of self-expression as well as a kind of survival.
That makes this warm, disarmingly optimistic documentary sound desperately sad when it’s anything but. Sometimes, all you need is a great subject to make a great documentary. A gifted editor helped in shaping a streamlined chronicle of love and resilience. -- The New York Times
