When the Nazis passed the Nuremberg Laws in 1935, Fredy Hirsch was a nineteen-year-old German Jew—and openly gay. He was deported to the Theresienstadt Ghetto and later Auschwitz. In Auschwitz, he set up a day care center, became much admired, and never hid his sexuality. Director Rubi Gat’s film Dear Fredy tells the story of Hirsch’s remarkable life and mysterious death—which happened on the eve of a revolt that never came to pass. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Gat.
