UT Hosts Film Showing to Commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day

UT’s McClung Museum will host a viewing of the film Unmasked Judeophobia at 7 p.m. on January 26 in its auditorium.

The film showing is in commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 72nd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp.

Following the film, there will be a question-and-answer session with filmmaker Gloria Z. Greenfield, who is an honorary artist in residence at UT, and Kenneth Marcus, former director of the US Commission on Civil Rights.

The 2011 film won the Platinum Remi Winner award at the WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival in 2012. Greenfield’s feature-length documentary film credits include The Case for Israel – Democracy’s Outpost (2008), Unmasked Judeophobia (2011), Body and Soul: The State of the Jewish Nation (2014), and the forthcoming Crumbling Towers: Subverting the Western Mind (2017). Greenfield’s documentary short film credits include Chazak, Chazak, v’Nitchazek: Bold Ideas From Three Leaders (2010) and The Louis D. Brandeis Center: For Human Rights Under Law (2013).

Marcus is president and general counsel of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law and author of The Definition of Anti-Semitism (Oxford University Press: 2015) and Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America (Cambridge University Press: 2010). Marcus founded the Brandeis Center in 2011.

A dessert reception will follow the program.

The entire event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Tennessee Holocaust Commission, the UT Cinema Studies Program, and the UT School of Journalism and Electronic Media.
