Event description

Description

Like so many of the 4,000 Jews who remained in Germany after the Holocaust, those living in Displaced Persons camps in Frankfurt in 1946 had to make new rules to survive. So, David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu, Run Lola Run) recruits some friends to sell linens to Germans at highly inflated prices. But while his friends are earning the money for their tickets to America, David is meeting with an American investigator who is determined to discover the secret he is hiding. Their experiences provide a picture of the immediate post-war period from a Jewish perspective. German filmmaker Sam Garbarski has gained popularity both as a director and writer for films such as Rashevski's Tango (2003) and Vijay and I (2013). Bye Bye Germany is his fifth film directing and writing.

Opening Night reception at 6:00 p.m.

Q&A with Avinoam Patt, Professor of Modern Jewish History at the University of Hartford, and director of the Museum of Jewish Civilization.
