Bleecker Street and The Museum of Tolerance invite you and a guest to a special Museum Members-Only pre-release screening of:
A film by Sean Ellis
Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at 7:00p.m.
Anthropoid is based on the extraordinary true
story of “Operation Anthropoid,” the code name for the
Czechoslovakian operatives’ mission to assassinate SS officer
Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution,
was the Reich’s third in command behind Hitler and Himmler and the leader
of Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia.
The film follows two soldiers from the Czechoslovakian
army-in-exile, Josef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan), who
are parachuted into their occupied homeland in December 1941. With
limited intelligence and little equipment in a city under lock down,
they must find a way to assassinate Heydrich.
