The Mizel Museum partners with the Denver Film Society to host teacher/broadcast journalist, Douglas Green along with two students from Carlsbad High in California, who will introduce their film, We Must Remember, and then join a panel of local survivors to engage in dialogue about their experience and the impact it has made in the way they perceive language and relationships.
Sixteen high school broadcasting students spend two years producing a remarkable film on the Holocaust. The documentary is a "film about a film" that documents the experiences of sixteen students as they interview survivors of the Holocaust, travel to Germany, Poland, Austria and Switzerland to film in former Nazi concentration camps, and shoot high definition video inside German high schools while interviewing German teens about the Holocaust. We Must Remember has won numerous awards in film festivals around the world, has been seen by thousands of high school students in North America and Europe, and is being heralded as "groundbreaking in its approach to introducing the Holocaust to teens."
