Screening of "Across the Waters" (2016)

This 94-minute drama (in Danish, with English subtitles) is the most recent film to tell the story of the rescue of the Jews of Denmark by their Danish countrymen, who helped them escape to Sweden and avoid deportation by the Nazi occupiers in October 1943.  

This film creening is the last in a three-part series organized by the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Hearst Center for the Arts in conjunction with the exhibit "Rescue + Resistance: Photographys by Judy Ellis Glickman," to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the rescue of the Jews of Denmark in the fall of 1943.

This event is free and open to the public. "Across the Waters" will also be screened (free and open to the public) at 10 a.m. on Nov. 15 at the Hearst Center for the Arts.

Screening of "Miracle at Midnight" (1998)

In this 90-minute drama, a Danish family hides their Jewish neighbors and helps them escape the roundup of the Jews of Denmark by the Nazi occupiers in the fall of 1943. The cast includes Sam Waterston and Mia Farrow.

This screening is the second in a three-part film series organized by the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Hearst Center for the Arts in conjunction with the exhibit "Rescue + Resistance: Photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman.  

Resistance + Rescue: Photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman

Through images and symbols, the horrors of the Holocaust are familiar to us all. Yet, too few of us are aware of the remarkable story of the flight of the Jews out of Denmark to safety in Sweden in the fall of 1943, seventy-five years ago. The exhibition of photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman reopens a time in our history when the bravery of a few overcame the brutality of so many.

Without words, Glickman tells the story of the rescue through pictorial observations. Using subtle manipulations of the photographic process, she captures the many emotions of the rescue, as well as a stark reminder of what Hitler’s Final Solution did achieve. Glickman also presents the concentration camps as cruel, empty places. In these images, we are reminded that without the courage of the Danish government and its people, the fate of Denmark’s Jews would have been similar to that of so many of their European neighbors.

This exhibit and related events (including an opening reception on from 5:30 to 7:00 on October 5 and a three-part film series) are a collaboration of the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Hearst Center for the Arts.

Theatre UNI: "American Spaces"

Teatre UNI, in collaboration with UNI’s First Year Cornerstone Program, presents "American Spaces." Based on “I Used to be a Human Being,” by Andrew Sullivan and "Maximum Sunlight" by Meagan Day, "American Spaces" is a devised work of theatre that explores the virtual and real life ways that we, as American citizens, interact with (and avoid) each other. Free and open to the public, but please reserve a ticket at unitix.uni.edu.
