At 10 am on Sunday, April 7, the Lyceum at First Parish on the Common will screen They Were Not Silent, the Jewish Labor Movement and the Holocaust,  a one-half hour documentary film about resistance to Hitler’s rise.  The experience of First Parishioner Hanna Papanek and her family is featured in the film; Hanna will introduce the film and answer questions.

“The film uses rare archival footage and photographs along with interviews with labor veterans, Holocaust survivors and scholars. It explores how international Jewry worked to help Jews and non-Jews in Germany, Poland, and elsewhere in Europe.” (fromWikipedia)

The Bedford Lyceum meets from 10 to 11 am in Room 202 on the second floor of Bedford’s historic meeting house on the Common. The Lyceum is free and open to the public. Please use the fully accessible Elm Street entrance for The Lyceum.
