Margaret’s Legacy
How do you sensitively describe the horror of the Holocaust to a younger generation, to help them understand?

Hamiltonian Danna Horwood has done just that with her film Margaret’s Legacy. This 35 minute video chronicles Danna’s grandparents Margaret and Arthur Weiszes’ experiences during WWII, their escape from Hungary to Canada and their new life in Hamilton. Told through the eyes of living Weisz descendants, this documentary addresses the themes of courage, survival and love, and educates youth about the need for tolerance and kindness in our world.

Please join us as we welcome Danna. She will screen the film and follow up with a discussion about how Margaret's Legacy was born and how its mission and vision continue to grow.
