In 1944, 16-year old Stefania (Kohn) Hecht was transported from Northern Romania to Auschwitz. Two years ago, she was introduced to a college student Rebeca Zoicas, who is from Romania and who became intrigued by her history and created a short film.

Dr. Alex Hect, Stefania's son, who founded the Northern Transylvania Holocaust Museum in 2005 to promote Holocaust education and Dan Glassman, Stefania's grandson, will join the discussion. The event will be moderated by author Roberta Seret, who will introduce her most recent book set in Transylvania during and after World War II.

Seret is the executive director of the United Nations NGO International Cinema Education Organization.
