Film Synopsis:

A journey through space and time, Numbered follows the ever optimistic 84 year old Gita Kalderon (Auschwitz prisoner number 76914), the realistic 84 year old Joka Levi (prisoner number A11998) and the adventurous 79 year old Dani Hanoch (prisoner number B2823). The film studies the complex relationship each of them has with the number and examines society’s ever-changing attitude toward it.

Hanna Rabinovitz, daughter of prisoner number 64650, adds her special perspective to the mix. Multiple testimonies from 30 survivors are integrated in the film, showcasing the clash between past and present, name and number, society and its symbols.

About Auschwitz: 
Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide, and the Holocaust. In 1942-1944, as part of the “final solution of the Jewish question”, the majority of the Jews who arrived in Auschwitz in transports organized by the Reich Main Security Office, at least 1.1 million people including more than 200 thousand children, were killed in the gas chambers immediately or soon after arrival.

Of all Nazi concentration camps, only in Auschwitz were prisoners marked on the flesh with tattooed prisoner numbers.

When: Tuesday, April 29, 7-8:30pm
Where: Chapman University, Chapman Auditorium, Memorial Hall, One University Dr., Orange, CA 92866
