Diamonds in the Snow Screening

May 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Hidden Child Foundation and the ADL New York/New Jersey Region invite you to join a virtual screening and panel discussion of the 1994 prize-winning documentary Diamonds in the Snow by Mira Reym Binford, filmmaker and educator.

Thousands of Jewish children lived in the Polish city of Bedzin before the Holocaust. Barely a dozen survived the community’s destruction. Through interviews and rare archival film and photos, this critically acclaimed, international award-winning documentary tells the story of three of these children, Ada Raviv, Shulamit Levin, and Mira Binford (the filmmaker). The women recount their memories of a childhood spent hiding from the Nazis, and they reflect on the courage of those who helped them to survive. The film not only documents a tragic historical period but also examines the complexity of human nature, undermining stereotypes about the behavior of Jews, Poles, and even some Germans during the era.

*Once registered we will send an email on April 28ths to view the film through May 3rd.
