Join us for a free screening of the documentary film Exile and Community: The Life of Carola Domar (1 hour), which follows the moving story of a young Jewish girl who grew up in Nazi Germany, escaped to the United States in her teens, and settled in an idealistic residential community in Concord, MA. Told by Carola Domar and her daughter, Alice, Domar’s story is all the more remarkable for the spirit of forgiveness with which she ultimately came to terms with her past and reconnected with her former homeland. Her story of exile and her search for community has particular relevance today in the context of mass migration and rising antisemitism.
The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker, Susan Rieder, and Domar’s two adult daughters, Erica Banderob and Alice Domar.
Mass Humanities is pleased to screen a film by one of our current grantees. With grant funding, the filmmaker is collaborating with a team of scholars and teachers to create a curriculum guide so this film – created with age-appropriate images and content for youth in grades 6-12 – can be a valuable teaching tool in classrooms throughout the Commonwealth.
