My Two Lives 2020

96 year old Holocaust survivor Lotte Weiss survived Auschwitz- but was the only one of her family to survive. As a young girl she lost everything but managed to go on to live a meaningful life. She has devoted many years as a volunteer at the Sydney Jewish Museum- telling her story to thousands of student and adult visitors.In this online talk- Lotte's sons- Gary and Johnny- will tell us more about her miraculous and heartbreaking story of survival.We will also screen a short film made by Sarita Gold- which profiles Lotte and her daughter in-law and artist Thea Weiss. Thea has produced multimedia artworks inspired by Lotte's story. The short film has won a number of awards and has been selected as a finalist for the Moscow Jewish Film Festival and as a semi-finalist for the Rhodes Film Festival. Yad Vashem has also requested it for their collection to accompany Thea's work- presented to them a few years ago.
