The Museum of Tolerance and the Sigi Ziering Institute invite you to a special screening of:

Weapons of the Spirit

Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 7:00pm

With special guest Eliane Wauquiez-Motte, Mayor of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, France, and Nelly Trocmé Hewett, daughter of Pastor André Trocmé of Le Chambon

"If you wish to learn what more men and women could have done to save Jews, watch Pierre Sauvage's poignant documentary. It is superb!" -- Elie Wiesel

Pierre Sauvage's highly acclaimed feature documentary captures the unique conspiracy of goodness that occurred in and around Le Chambon during the Holocaust.  There, five thousands Jews (including the filmmaker), were sheltered—by five thousand Christians!

Q & A following the screening with  Mayor Wauquiez-Motte, Nelly Trocmé Hewett and Director Pierre Sauvage

Moderated by  Holocaust scholar and Director of the Sigi  Ziering Institute Dr. Michael Berenbaum.

There is no charge for the screening but pre-registration is required.

Free underground parking. 

Please be considerate of our residential neighbors and make every effort to avoid driving through single-family residential neighborhood streets.
