Section

Executive Summary of this Annual Report

B-Executive Summary

The Institute made important strides in the past year.  We hosted the first meeting of our Advisory Board, launched an Internet presence on both the web as well as Facebook, and sponsored a series of high-profile events on the IPFW campus.  These included hosting world-renowned documentary filmmaker Rex Bloomstein, perhaps best known for his film The Longest Hatred about the history of anti-Semitism; and organizing and hosting a half-day symposium in conjunction with the U.S. Holocaust Museum on how to teach the Holocaust effectively.  We also secured approximately $3000 in external funding to help subsidize future lectures and events.  These include a visit from filmmaker Sandra Schulberg in September, who will be screening a restored version of a documentary on the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunals directed by her father Stuart Schulberg; and a visit in November from Wilfried Agricola, curator of the Shoah Film Collection, an archive of short films and videos dealing with some aspect of the Holocaust.  This screening would be a U.S. premiere.  We have requested an additional $7000 to cover costs related to these events.  However, we intend to offset these costs with the $3000 we have secured in external funding from Temple Achduth Vesholom.

3. To promote public participation in efforts to confront contemporary genocide as it occurs

Met with representatives of Temple Achduth Vesholom in April 2011 to successfully secure approximately $3000 in external funding from them.  This will bring two internationally acclaimed speakers to campus.  In September, producer-director Sandra Schulberg will be in Fort Wayne to talk about her restoration of her father Stuart Schulberg's documentary on the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal, Nuremberg: Its Lessons and Legacies (1948).  Until now, the film was never given a theatrical release in the U.S.  The event is being co-sponsored by Congregation Achduth Vesholom and Fort Wayne Cinema Center.  This will be one of the first 35mm screenings of the film in Indiana.  The other speaker we are bringing is Wilfried Agricola.  He is curator of the Shoah Film Collection, an ongoing archive of short film and video work related to the Holocaust.  This will be the U.S. premiere for this collection.  We will be screening these films over two nights in early November.  This is also co-sponsored with Achduth Vesholom and Cinema Center.

Organized event that brought internationally renowned filmmaker Rex Bloomstein to campus in April 2011 to talk on his latest project, This Prison Where I Live.  The film is about a Burmese comedian and dissident Sanganar, and we used the event to do outreach with the city's Burmese community.  Approximately 60 people attended the screening.  This was an Indiana premiere of the film.  Bloomstein is perhaps best-known in the U.S. for his documentary The Longest Hatred about the history of anti-Semitism.
