St. John’s Episcopal Church, 211 N. Monroe St. Tallahassee 32301 + Google Map

Anger and Polarization doesn't exist in theory and in far-off places - ultimately it's a dysfunction that takes roots (and can grow) in who we are to each other right here where we live. We have already seen signs of the percolation of the anger we feel toward each other in incidents across our community, so it's past time to have a direct conversation. We'll talk about hate planted in our homes, our schools and our media - and what…

Sophie Scholl was a fearless leader of an underground student resistance group in Munich called “The White Rose”. She and her brother Hans were arrested by the Gestapo in 1943 for distributing pamphlets on campus. During their “trial” they boldly called for freedom, rights, and personal responsibility. Sophie never once backed down even in the face of certain death. Using the historical records of her interrogations and trial, this Oscar nominated 2005 film re-creates the last six days of her young life. A tense and compelling story of courage in…

On a summer day in 1941 in Nazi-occupied Poland, half of the town of Jedwabne brutally murdered the other half: 1,600 men, women, and children-all but seven of the town’s Jews. In this shocking and compelling study, historian Jan Gross pieces together eyewitness accounts as well as physical evidence into a comprehensive reconstruction of the horrific July day remembered well by locals but hidden to history. Revealing wider truths about Jewish-Polish relations, the Holocaust, and human responses to occupation and…

None Shall Escape – I Saw it in the Movies Series

This film included Hollywood’s first overt presentation of the Nazi persecution of Jews. Released in 1944, it tells the story of a near-future, post-war tribunal of a Nazi officer. Through flashbacks dramatizing the testimony of witnesses, we see the officer’s transition from a WWI vet to an unrepentant Nazi mass murderer. For the 1944 movie goer, this film shockingly and openly presented the reality of cattle cars loaded with Jews on their way to death. A gripping drama about human evil which was eerily predictive of the 1960…
