Lecture in ENGLISH
During the Nazi regime in Czechoslovakia, many items of Judaica were confiscated from Jewish communities that had been expelled. These artifacts, including Torah Scrolls,were brought to Prague and each one was given a number. During the Communist regime, the Torah Scrolls were dispersed among Jewish Communities around the world. One of the scrolls that emanated from Brno, reached Chicago, in the U.S. Marvell Ginsburg wrote a children's book about the scroll, and later an animated film was made, dubbed by Ed Asner.
Speaker: Beth Kopin, daughter of Marvell Ginsburg and producer of the film, and others from the production team.
