The Monster Among Us

Filmmakers Allen Mondell and Cynthia Salzman Mondell document the anti-Semitism currently growing in Europe in their film The Monster Among Us. As the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles, anti-Jewish violence is on the rise. According to the film, the increase in hate crimes and acts of violence can be directly linked to radical Muslim immigrants — and to the seemingly short memories of some Europeans. Sixty years ago, the world promised never to forget the atrocities committed during the Holocaust, but as the anti-Jewish actions once again flourish across the European Union, it seems society has done exactly that. The filmmakers will attend today’s screening, which kicks off the Houston Jewish Film Festival. 7:30 p.m. Jewish Community Center, 5601 South Braeswood. For information, call 713-729-3200 or visit $7 to $9.

Tue., March 17, 7:30 p.m., 2009
