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.
