Screening of “Every Face Has a Name”

Winner of the Church of Sweden prize at the Gothenburg fest, a new documentary about the Holocaust reveals little-known details of post-WWII history. In the fascinating Swedish documentary “Every Face Has a Name,” helmer Magnus Gerttentracks down and interviews survivors from German concentration camps seen in a 35mm archival film reel showing their arrival at the harbor of Malmo, Sweden, on April 28, 1945. The group includes Jews from all over Europe, Norwegian prisoners of war, Polish mothers and children, members of the French resistance and British spies — and perhaps unique among them, a young Italian-American who was accused of being a spy while visiting her grandparents and deported to Auschwitz.
