Lecture: Forgotten Transports to Estonia w/Lukáš Přibyl

November 09, 2016, 12:00 PM

Award-winning documentarian Lukáš Přibyl will give a lecture featuring clips from his film Forgotten Transports to Estonia on November 9, at 12 noon, in the Law Library of the Library of Congress. On September 5, 1942, a transport of a thousand Czech Jews arrives at the tiny village of Raasiku in Estonia. Nazi officers immediately separate out several dozen young women and take them to a nearby concentration camp. The bewildered girls soon form an extremely tight-knit group based on mutual aid and bonds stronger than friendship. Though their living conditions steadily deteriorate, they refuse to acknowledge this to themselves. They are convinced they will return home and will be reunited with their families. Explore the lives of these resilient girls through this powerful lecture.
