Film, panel shine light on Holocaust survivors
The award-winning documentary, Last Journey Into Silence, will make its Atlanta debut March 31 at 7 p.m. in the Carlos Museum reception hall.

Writer/director Shosh Shlam and Galina Lirzansky, daughter of one of the survivors, will speak and answer questions following the screening. They also will take part in a panel discussion, Monday, April 1 at 10 a.m. in 110 White Hall.

The film and the panel are sponsored by the Program in Comparative Literature.

In last week’s issue, Emory Report incorrectly reported that Benoit Mandelbrot, one of the University’s 2002 honorary degree recipients, had received the Fields Medal, the most prestigious award in mathematics.
