Join Bernard-Henri Lévy and Deborah Lipstadt for a special screening of the last film made by Claude Lanzmann (Shoah)
The Hippocratic Oath should be a simple love story. But the girl met the boy in a village where her family hid after the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia. Their wedding took place in Theresienstadt ghetto just as her parents were deported. And within weeks of realizing she was pregnant, Ruth Elias was loaded onto a cattle car and sent to Auschwitz. There, she came to the attention of Dr. Josef Mengele, the camp chief physician, known as the “Angel of Death” for his demented experiments on prisoners – and Ruth faced the worst choice a mother could imagine.
The Hippocratic Oath is part of Lanzmann’s final film, Shoah: Four Sisters*, crafted from stories he left on the cutting room floor when he made Shoah.
The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center is honored to present the first of those stories, with introductory remarks by French intellectual Bernard-Henri Lévy (The Genius of Judaism) and a post-screening conversation with historian Deborah Lipstadt (whose legal battle against a British Holocaust denier became the film Denial).
The remaining three films in the series will be screened in April 2019.
Sponsored by Temple Emanu-El board member Charles S. Cohen and The Cohen Media Group along with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
*This film will be released theatrically in New York on November 14th.Buy tickets/get more info now
