Olga Gershenson, author of The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe, will introduce and discuss the film.
Made in the Soviet Union in 1938, Professor Mamlock was one of the first films worldwide to directly tackle Nazi anti-Semitism. Based on a play by Friedrich Wolf, a German-Jewish exile to Moscow, and directed by Adolf Minkin and Herbert Rappaport, the film tells with brutal honesty the story of a Jewish doctor as he becomes a victim of the Nazis’ rise to power in 1930s Germany.
