The Laddie Lollar Symposium on Human Rights is Thursday, October 17 at 7 p.m. in Odom Hall on the campus of Bethel University. The symposium features a screening of “Kinderblock 66: Return to Buchenwald” and Q & A with the film’s executive producer Steven Moskovic.
When Buchenwald concentration camp was liberated in 1945, there were almost 1,000 boys who had been protected by political prisoners being held at the camp. The film follows four of those “Buchenwald Boys” as they travel back to Buchenwald for the 65th anniversary of the camp’s liberation and their efforts to secure recognition as Righteous Among the Nation status for the man who kept them alive.
Steven Moskovic’s father, Alex Moskovic, was one of the Buchenwald Boys, and his father’s experience inspired him to make the film. Steve is an award-winning producer, director and photographer with over 25 years experience. His production credits include independent and feature films and features for ESPN, The History Channel, PBS and the Discovery Channel.
The Lollar Symposium is sponsored by Bethel University’s College of Arts and Sciences, Division of Social Science, Department of History and the Tennessee Holocaust Commission.
