Location Holocaust Museum Houston
Date Wed, Jan 11, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Duration   2h

The Silverman Latin American Institute’s evening program will feature a special film screening and conversation around Holocaust trauma and its’ transmission. Whispers of Silence explores the stories of Holocaust survivors rebuilding their lives in Mexico. Little by little, they begin their difficult process of adaptation to a new culture, language and climate. They begin to work, get married, start families and have children. But the trauma of the Holocaust will always be present in their lives and they transmit it to their children with secrets, fears, traumas, guilt, losses, sadness, nightmares ... through "Whispers of Silence." The program will feature a talk back with filmmakers and content experts Aaron Cohen, Esther Cohen and Miriam Grynberg de Cielak.

This is a bilingual program with interpretation services available in English and Spanish.

The Silverman Latin American Institute, supported by the Lt. David L. Silverman Endowment Fund, is an international bilingual conference that brings educators from Latin America and the United States together to study the Holocaust, human rights, and social justice. Silverman Fellows are immersed in historical and pedagogical content while creating international networks that strengthen educational collaborations.
