The Kennedy Institute, in partnership with the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for Conflict Intervention at Maynooth University in Ireland, will jointly host a screening of the documentary “Condemned to Remember” for scheduled student groups on Friday, October 12. A compelling and moving documentary, “Condemned to Remember” follows the experiences of Holocaust survivor and Irish citizen Tomi Reichental, as he acknowledges recent European history and present day migration stories, and draws unsettling parallels between the past and today’s present.

A discussion with the film’s featured subject, Tomi Reichental, and Emmy award winning filmmaker Gerry Gregg will follow the screening.
