To Bear Witness

In observance of Genocide Awareness month, The Immigrant Story, in collaboration with NW Documentary, presents To Bear Witness, a unique collection of five short documentaries portraying the extraordinary lives of seven survivors of the Holocaust, genocide and atrocities of war. These stories are told in the first person, personalizing their compelling narratives and offering powerful testimonies to survival.  This anthology of five short stories reveals some of the emotional costs of the search for a peaceful home.

At the conclusion of the movie presentation, Sankar Raman, president of The Immigrant Story, will moderate a panel discussion. Panelists will include two of the storytellers from the movie, Emmanuel Turaturanye from Rwanda and Saron Khut from Cambodia, along with Dr. Amanda Byron Singer, a faculty member from Portland State University who specializes in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. The audience will also have an opportunity to ask questions.

The movie plus the talkback will run for two hours. This is a free event but you still need to secure a ticket.
