Then, 6 pm Pacific Standard Time, January 27th, tune in for a Q+A with director Peter Bebjak and lead actor Noel Czuczor in conversation with L.A. Times Envelope Contributor Robert Abele.
Film Summary: It is April 7, 1944, and two young Slovak Jews imprisoned in Auschwitz, Alfred Wetzler and Valér Vrba, hide in a pit under a pile of wooden logs where they can observe the Nazis of Auschwitz as they led thousands of prisoners to their deaths. Making notes on the number of people in the transports and the details of the deathly operation of the camp, the men compile a priceless report which they must smuggle out of the camp. After three days of hiding, they embark on their daring escape from the camp and face nearly impossible odds crossing the mountains to Slovakia, only to discover that the most difficult part awaited them back in civilization. They must convince a world unwilling to believe them that what they experienced was real.
RSVP today to receive both links for the screening of The Auschwitz Report as well as the Q+A on the day of the event(s).
