Blending unique and intimate testimony with immersive archive, Destination Unknown unveils the human stories underlying he evens of the Holocaust.  These include one of the few escapees from the terror of Treblinka, and an exclusive interview with Mietek Pemper, who helped Oskar Schindler compile his list.  The film traces the narrow paths to survival, whether in hiding, fighting as partisans, or through enduring he camps such as Krakow-Plaszow, Mauthausen, and Auschwitz-Birkenau. While a few managed to escape, most had to try to find a way to stay alive until the end of the war.  Their stories do not end with liberation.  Destination Unknown explores how these survivors had to navigate the chaos that came afterwards, and their attempts to build new lives.

After the screening, Dr. Jack Terry and Bonnie Glogover will discuss the movie and open the conversation to a Q&A with the audience.

Born in Poland in 1930, Dr. Jack Terry is an American success story.  After a horrific youth in concentration  camps, he migrated to the United States, completed high school and college, became a geologist, served in the U.S. Army, and went on to earn a medical degree.  From there, he became an accomplished New York psychoanalyst with a focus on helping other holocaust survivors.

Bonnie Glogover is an award-winning inventor and entrepreneur whose creativity and passion extends beyond her professional work.  Her determination and efforts to make sure that the Holocaust does not become a footnote in history are heroic and unwavering.  The daughter of Holocaust survivor Stanley Glogover, Bonnie took the mantra “never forget” about the Holocaust to heart, successfully lobbying the House of Representatives to establish the national Holocaust Remembrance Day that is now marked each spring.  She honors her father’s memory daily through hard work, determination, strategic thinking and her passion to “never forget.”
