Coinciding with Yom Ha'Shoah, we will screen the new documentary, Three Minutes: A Lengthening, a close look at three minutes of footage of a Polish Jewish community in 1938. The film is based on Stanford alum Glenn Kurtz's book about discovering the footage, shot by his grandfather David, called Three Minutes in Poland: Discovering a Lost World in 1938. The film, directed by Bianca Stigter, captures a moment in a community before it is decimated by the Shoah. We will be joined by Stigter and Kurtz for a conversation and Q&A following the screening. 

Guest parking is available for free after 4pm in Roth Garage near Oshman Hall.
