Speaker - Dr. Julia Creet - "Mum"
Please join us on Sunday March 19th for a joint meeting with the Temple Anshe Sholom’s Breakfast Club (there is a charge if you have breakfast), as we present a special screening of the film Mum. Created by York University English professor, Julia Creet, this 37 minute film is part literary detective story and part personal journey. It is drawn from Professor Creet’s mother’s memoirs, letters and poems - an archive of a survivor who left a paper trail to her hidden Jewish past. The trail leads to Hungary, where local memory reveals the surprising story her mother tried to forget. is
