Screening for Belgian ASF volunteers of ‘Transport XX to Auschwitz’

ASF België / Belgique

Our documentary film ‘Transport XX to Auschwitz‘  was screened September 2017 in Brussels for the new volunteers of ASF België / Belgique.
This Belgian ASF association is part of the international network of Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste – in english called : ‘Action Reconciliation Service for Peace‘.

These Belgian ASF one year ‘Service for Peace’ volunteers work a year in both social projects with the elderly, migrants, people with disabilities, and socially vulnerable children , and also historical and educational projects, in eg. museums and memorials , like Kazerne Dossin.

 

Resistance is the current year theme for the ASP – reason enough to pay attention to an unique act of resistance in the history of the Second World War: the attack at Boortmeerbeek on the 20th death train to Auschwitz.
More details and free online viewing  of the film here on this site via this link.

Florida radio talk show host Joyce Kaufman and holocaust education director Avi Mizrachi discuss film “Transport XX to Auschwitz”

In the Joyce Kaufman talk show on the 850 WFTL Florida radio station, the host Joyce Kaufman was joined by executive director Avi Mizrachi from the Foundation for Holocaust Education Projects last Wednesday, March 25, 2015.*

850 WFTL The Joyce Kaufman Show Wednesday 03-25-2015 (Hr. 3) blue

Mr. Avi Mizrachi spoke on the special events, that they are planning together with Young Israel of Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale (Florida, US) in the coming Holocaust Days of Remembrance Week.

The first event –  Sunday, April 12, 2015, 8:00 pm at Young Israel of Hollywood
Film : Transport XX to Auschwitz

Avi Mizrachi – “This film is a documentary film that probably documented the only attempt by … any underground [to attack] … a transport train that was taking Belgium Jews to Auschwitz. They managed to stop the train and about two hundred people escaped. This is really a unique story, that was shot on location, and actually … interviewed some of the survivors that managed to be rescued and survived. …
And the other thing about this particular event : One of the film producers – Mr. Richard Bloom – who is actually living in Palm Beach – wil join us immediately following the film to share … how he with a Dutch producer [ Mr. Michel van der Burg ] went about to produce this film. …
And, in addition, we have … a high school teacher from Belgium [ Mr. Philippe Renette ] who is visiting us this particular week – and he teaches holocaust history in his public high school [ Institut Saint-Sépulcre ] in Liège [ Belgium ]. …
He will join us as well – because he met some of the survivors and invited them to his school to share with the students.
So it … [ will ] give the public an amazing access to … not just the film itself , but to the people that actually were involved in the production of it .. and the teaching of the subject. …
That film shows the bravery of a handful of people who despite the horrible … the odds – they went to attack a transport – a nazi train – and it’s the only documented event in the holocaust. …
This is the lesson that hopefully the people will take from that kind of film : that despite the horrible things happening around us .. if you have the courage, you can change things, and you can save people …

The second event – Thursday, April 16, 2015, 7:00 pm at Temple Sinai of Hollywood – Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Memorial Day Program
Avi Mizrachi – “The second event -a few days later on April 16 – which commemorates the annual Yom HaShoah Holocaust Remembrance day – we will hold a special program … at Temple Sinai of Hollywood – were we will have holocaust survivors and WW veterans, who will join us to light a special candle … there will be a beautiful program.
And following the program, the public will have an opportunity to sit together with a few holocaust survivors and to listen to their personal stories of what happened to them during the time – and how they managed to stand up and live an amazing life …
And this year will also mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camps.”

Joyce Kaufman – “Thank you Avi. People are still trying to do the right thing, and that’s what the theme of that movie is – fighting unbeatable odds ….”
