CANDLES Holocaust Museum to host film, producer

TERRE HAUTE — CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center on Feb. 20 will host a showing of the documentary “Irena Sendler: In the Name of Their Mothers” with speaker Mary Skinner, the film’s director and producer.

The showing will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the museum at 1532 S. Third St.

Touched by the plight of the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, Sendler and a number of other brave women smuggled food and supplies into the ghetto while smuggling children out. Irena Sendler premiered on PBS in May 2011 and is about one hour in length. It features the last in-depth interview with Sendler before her death at age 98. Rare archival footage, family photographs and evocative re-creations shot in Warsaw bring the lives of the hidden Jewish children, Sendler and her co-workers into dramatic focus. The film is testament to the power of moral courage in the darkest of times.

The free film screening is made possible through an Indiana Humanities Initiative grant.
