The Institute for Holocaust Education will bring three films to Omaha, starting Thursday night.
• “Suskind” will screen at 7 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center, 333 S. 132nd St. Admission is free. It’s the true story of Walter Suskind, a member of the Jewish Council in Amsterdam who saved nearly 1,000 Jewish children from deportation.
• “Hiding and Seeking,” a documentary, will screen at the Jewish Community Center at 7 p.m. Jan. 30. Admission is again free. The movie follows a Jewish father who takes his two ultra-Orthodox sons on a journey from Israel to Poland to find the gentiles who saved their grandfather by hiding him for two years.
• The institute partnered with Film Streams to bring the final film, “No Place on Earth,” to the Ruth Sokolof Theater, 14th and Mike Fahey Streets, at 7 p.m. Feb. 18. It’s a docu-drama about five Ukrainian Jewish families who sought refuge in a cold, muddy hole in the ground, where they lived for 511 days. Four survivors return to Ukraine to thank the cave. The screening will be followed by an audience QNA.
