Sterne Screening and Discussion
January 27 , 7:00 pm
title: Sterne Screening and Discussion
description: The Holocaust Center, in partnership with the Carnegie Mellon Department of Modern Languages and Rodef Shalom, is marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a special screening of Sterne (Stars). The East German film is a gripping drama about a sergeant in the Wehrmacht and how his life is changed by the establishment of a transit camp for Jews arriving from Greece.
Sterne, which won the 1959 Special Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes International Film Festival, is a linguistic triumph, speaking to the diversity of Jewish victims of the Holocaust. The film features dialog in Bulgarian, German, Greek, and Ladino; because English subtitles were not completed until 1999, the film has gained new life in the 21st century.
This is the first time Sterne has been screened in Pittsburgh.
