The Canadian Embassy, in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy and NS Documentation Center in Munich, will host a film matinee of “Mischling” along with a witness discussion with Judy Rosenberg.

In the film, Jason Oberlander conducts an interview with his grandmother, Judy Rosenberg. In the 1940s, Judy lived in Munich with her parents and worked as a caretaker as the Jewish Hospital. At 14, she became a housekeeper at the a Jewish children’s home in Antonienstrasse.

During the film, Judy details the persecution faced by Munich’s Jews. Judy’s uncle was murdered in Auschwitz in 1943. Judy was moved to the “Jewish camp” at Berg am Laim in 1942, where she was forced to do manual labor. Before the end of the war, Judy and her father were deported by the Gestapo to Theresienstadt, a hybrid concentration camp and ghetto established by the SS during World War II.

After the showing of the film, there will be a discussion with Judy Rosenberg and her grandson, Jason Oberlander. The film and discussion will be in English. It will take place on June 6, 2019 at 10 AM at the NS Documentation Center Munich, Auditorium.
