Room 296-8



As part of the Rising Up for Human Dignity 2017 Film Festival, join us for a screening of Ahead of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber.

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day was this past Sunday, April 23rd. Before the film starts, Rabbi Ariel Stone will lead us as we will take a moment to remember all of those lost during the Holocaust and join together to pledge to work towards "Never Again!" We are honored to have April Slabosheski, Holocaust Educator at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education and Julia Reihs, local photographer, videographer, writer and storyteller with us for an engaging talk-back after the film. Attendees will also have a chance to share a reflection for a Together We Remember (TWR) project. TWR is a global month of remembrance and activism for all victims of genocide and mass atrocities.

At age 24, Ruth Gruber became a New York Herald Tribune reporter and photographer and the same year was the first journalist to enter the Soviet Arctic. A trusted member of the Roosevelt Administration during WWII, she was given a dangerous secret mission. A feminist before feminism, Ruth was never just an observer, she was a participant in the making of history. Run time: 1 hour 13 min

Doors at 6:30pm. Film starts at 7pm. PSU's Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 296-8

Rising Up for Human Dignity 2017 Film Festival is a collaboration of The Holocaust and Genocide Studies Project at Portland State University and the Never Again Coalition. www.neveragaincoalition.org/rising-up
