Taking a Stand: Resistance & Survival

• East Valley JCC
On January 11th, 2014 @ 7pm at the Chandler Center for the Arts, the JCC will proudly partner with the Phoenix Holocaust Survivors Association (PHSA), Generations After (GA), and the City of Chandler to present Taking a Stand: Resistance & Survival.  The program will feature a moderated panel discussion with Tom Blatt and Philip Bialowitz, 2 of the remaining 8 living survivors of the Sobibor extermination camp.  For those who are unfamiliar, after a successful revolt on October 14, 1943 approximately 600 prisoners made an escape attempt from Sobibor.  It is believed that 300 were successful and about 50 of those evaded capture.  The panel discussion will be guided by clips from the award winning and gripping fact based drama Escape From Sobibor allowing the audience to visually and chronologically follow Tom and Philips’ story of resistance & survival.
