Post-Screening Discussion about "The Starfish"
In 1938, 10-year-old Herb Gildin and his two older sisters were sent by their parents to live in Sweden to escape Nazi persecution. As they waved goodbye, the parents feared they would never see their children again. Watch Tyler Gildin’s award-winning documentary on your own (cost $2.99 on various platforms) about his father’s survival, the family’s reunion in New York, and the work of HIAS that made it possible.
After you watch the film on your own, join the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County for a virtual post-discussion with documentary filmmaker Tyler Gildin and Senior Director of Major Gifts at HIAS, Erin Kade Greenbaum.
