First-time filmmaker Beth Lane, a member of the second generation of Holocaust survivors, will debut her film, “UnBroken,” on the East Coast on Sunday, November 12, at Village East by Angelika, 181-189 2nd Ave. on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The film’s editor, Aaron Soffin, comes from Succasunna, where his father, Joel Soffin, is rabbi emeritus at Temple Shalom. After a second screening on November 13, at the same place, Rabbi Soffin will moderate a Q&A session.
The film also will be available online.
Ms. Lane, the daughter of Ginger Lane, the youngest of the Weber siblings, tells her family’s story. The story describes how the seven siblings, whose mother was murdered at Auschwitz, evaded capture and death in Germany. After they were hidden in a laundry hut by a benevolent farmer and his wife, the children spent two years on their own.
Ms. Lane spent years making this film. It was completed with help from the Weber Family Arts Foundation. For information, go to www.docnyc.net/film/unbroken.
