The documentary film Telling Their Stories focuses on the lives of four survivors and the journeys that brought them to New Hampshire from Germany, Hungary, and Poland. Narrated by former Governor Jeanne Shaheen, the film features Anna Klein (Hungary) and Stephan Lewy (Germany), both of Manchester, the late Joseph Regensburger (Germany) of Lee, and Ruth Segal (Poland) of Hanover, reflecting on their lives under the Nazi regime.
Telling Their Stories will be shown at the Historical Society of Cheshire County on Wednesday, December 14th at 6:30pm in collaboration with the Cohen Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies. Tom White, Coordinator of Educational Outreach at the Center, will lead a discussion following the film. Produced by Robert Spiegelman of Manchester and Fred Wolff of Lee in association with the Cohen Center for Holocaust Studies at Keene State College, this is the first film to record the experiences of Holocaust survivors living in New Hampshire. David DeArville of Manchester directed the film.
“One of the youngsters once asked: ‘Where does hate come from?’ To me, it’s a very simple answer. It comes from the breakfast table…that’s how it starts.” – Stephan Lewy
