Festival of Preservation at Portland Northwest Film Center

The Portland Northwest Film Center and The Portland Institute for Jewish Studies recently hosted Julie Kohner and theUCLA Festival of Preservation for a showing of “This Is Your Life” on January 15, 2012.  The three episodes once again featured Holocaust survivor’s stories, and Julie as the guest speaker for an introductory talk about her mother, Hanna Bloch Kohner, one of three guests, and the first Holocaust survivor to have her story told to a national television audience,  and a follow up question & answer session. This was a very memorable evening.
