Solihull School

British Premiere of Close to Evil

Holocaust Survivor, Tomi Reichental, will be joining us at Solihull School next month for the British Premiere of ‘Close to Evil’, followed by a discussion on the film’s subject with Tomi and the film’s producer Gerry Gregg.

Close to Evil is a true story which follows the journey of Tomi as he discovers one of his former jailers - Hilde Lisiewicz is alive and living in Hamburg. Lisiewicz is a convicted War Criminal but claims she is a victim of victor's justice. Tomi embarks on a quest to investigate the SS woman's claims of innocence.

Unexpectedly Tomi's odyssey ends where his story began, back in his native Merasice, meeting the ghosts from the past and embracing a German woman directly associated with the man who had a role in the liquidation of 35 people in Tomi's family.

Members of the school community are invited to the premiere and discussion on Monday 1 February 2016 from 7pm till 9pm. If you are interested in attending, please contact Mrs T Duggan on 0121 705 0958 or email to request tickets.  Tickets for are allocated free of charge, on a first-come first-served basis.
