RESISTANCE: A Film + Live Discussion with Jesse Eisenberg

Long before he rose to international fame as a mime, Marcel Marceau put his fledgling career as an artist on hold to spirit Jewish refugee children out of Nazi-occupied France, even as his own father was murdered at Auschwitz. Watch the extraordinary new film Resistance, about that little-known chapter of Marceau’s life, and then join our discussion with the film’s star, Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), director and screenwriter Jonathan JakubowiczBarry Eisenberg (SUNY-Empire State, second generation Holocaust survivor) and Dr. Eileen Angelini, an expert on France during the Holocaust. Moderated by Richard Salomon, Vice President of the Illinois Holocaust Museum, with a special introduction by David Estrin, CEO of #TogetherWeRemember and closing word by Susan Abrams, CEO at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
