Friday 26 January, 1.30pm

For the survivors of the Holocaust, liberation came over 70 years ago, but what happened during the war still burns inside. ‘Destination Unknown’ captures the pain that continues to haunt them, and the resilience needed to live on.

Twelve Holocaust survivors recall events in this sobering World War Two documentary. The film combines survivor testimony, archive footage and photography to highlight the atrocities committed, with interviewees providing personalised accounts of their experiences. Some survived the death camps through hiding, others as part of a resistance group, and accounts are given of the assistance provided by Oskar Schindler. As well as the events themselves, the documentary also looks at how they have affected the lives of the subjects in the decades since. ‘Destination Unknown’ is a difficult but necessary insight into the Holocaust told by those that both witnessed and survived it.
This event is free of charge for school groups but places are limited. Please book your ticket online or call Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre on T: 028 7083 1400.
Please note that ‘Destination Unknown’ has been classified as a Certificate 12 film and some scenes may be upsetting for viewers.
