“A Promise to my Father”, the World War II Foundation’s Documentary Film Highlighting One Auschwitz Survivor, Debuts in Boston
WHAT: The world premiere of the World War II Foundation’s documentary film, “A Promise to my Father,” tells the story of Holocaust survivor Israel Arbeiter and his return to Poland in 2012 with Foundation.
Mr. Arbeiter’s incredible story of survival started as a boy in Poland with just a few words from his father prior to his family being sent to the Treblinka death camp. His journey took him to Germany and ended in the United States, with hope for a new life.
In 2012, he returned to Poland and his boyhood home, where his family had originally buried Jewish religious artifacts to keep them hidden from the invading German troops. Despite the home now being condemned, Mr. Arbeiter did his best to unearth these religious symbols for the first time in 73 years.
Following the one-hour film, Mr. Arbeiter will host a Q & A session.
