February 6: Leaving Memel – Refugees from the Reich – A 40 minute film based on the life events of Cherie Goren and her family, who were forced by Nazis to leave their home in 1939. Q&A facilitated by filmmaker: Fred Finkelstein

Judith and Leo Fleischmann were prosperous German Jews living in Memel, Lithuania, the port city on the Baltic Sea in what was originally a part of East Prussia.  When Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany in 1933 their lives were turned upside down, but through family connections and good timing they survived to tell their story.
