By Christy Bailey-Tomecek - October 18, 2022

The Fortunoff Archive is pleased to announce that the first film in the Vlock Film Series, "I Am Free...But Who is Left?", will be streamed by the Center for Medicine, Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Cedars-Sinai. Event participants will receive streaming access to the film and attend an online talkback on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at 12:00 PM, PT with 2020 Vlock Fellow Joanne Weiner Rudof (director and producer), Lawrence L. Langer (co-producer) and Sari J. Siegel (founding director, Center for Medicine, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies)

"I Am Free...But Who is Left?" documents a mother, a father, four brothers, and a sister living in Hrubieszów, Poland, a small town with a majority Jewish population. They thrive economically and academically despite antisemitism. Survivors of the family and the town describe the Nazi invasion, brutality, destruction, and murder. Personal photographs and documents enhance reflective first person accounts.
