COMMUNITY SCREENING
in commemoration of Yom HaShoah

NEVER AGAIN IS NOW has been called “one of the most important documentaries of the decade”. It explores the troubling rise of antisemitism in Europe through the eyes of a woman who fled to America in 2004 to escape it. At times controversial but powerful, the film is a stark reminder that the watch words of the Holocaust need to be more than just words.

Evelyn Markus was raised in Holland by parents who witnessed the growing anti-Jewish violence of the 1940s. Her parents survived the Holocaust when Allied soldiers liberated them in 1945. When Markus saw signs of the same disturbing trends returning to the Netherlands, she left the land her family called home for centuries. Today she confronts the hatred that drove her out, and embraces her life’s mission — to prevent one of history’s darkest chapters from repeating.

There is no charge for tickets for this special screening, but advance reservations are required.
