Join Holocaust survivor Judy Meisel and the Jewish Law Students Association for a film showing and Q&A.

"Tak for Alt: Survival of the Human Spirit" tells the story of Meisel, whose experiences during World War II inspired a life-long campaign against racism. Unlike many Holocaust films that end with liberation in 1945, "Tak for Alt" contextualizes these wartime events within Meisel's continuing work as a civil rights advocate and educator, utilizing her experiences as a means to combat bigotry and racism here in the United States. Through the film, Meisel offers an example that one person can make a difference.
