Garden State Film Festival Recognizes Holocaust Resource Center

The Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center was honored by The Garden State Film Festival at the GSFF Awards Dinner on March 22. The center received the 2015 Broader Vision Award for Filmmaking Dedicated to the Greater Good for its work in preserving history and promoting tolerance through filmmaking.

Toby Rosenthal, adjunct instructor in Jewish Studies; Gail Rosenthal, director of the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center; Ted Greenberg, former Stockton student and the Jersey Shore Bureau reporter for Philadelphia’s NBC10.

"The award is for our three films dedicated to the goal of educating future generations about the Holocaust: Alone No More: A Community Assists Holocaust Survivors, Rails of the Holocaust: A Journey to Stockton College, and From Despair, Hope," said Gail Rosenthal, director of the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center.

Alone No More: A Community Assists Holocaust Survivors is an 11-minute documentary highlighting the commitment of the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center and Jewish Family Service of Atlantic and Cape May Counties for providing social, cultural, and other services for local Holocaust survivors.

Rails of the Holocaust: A Journey to Stockton College, explains the use of railroads by the Nazis to transport Jews and others to concentration camps. It also illustrates the shipping of railroad tracks from Bialystok, Poland to Stockton, where they form a canopy over the entrance to the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center located on the second floor of the library.

From Despair, Hope is a 28-minute documentary about three Holocaust survivors from Atlantic County who had vastly different experiences during the Holocaust.
