“There Were Good People…Doing Extraordinary Deeds” to screen October 29

Submitted by Laurie Melchionne for The Argo

On Thursday, October 29, Stockton Communication Studies Speaker Spotlight Series will feature a virtual screening of the Holocaust documentary, “There Were Good People…Doing Extraordinary Deeds: Leo Ullman’s Story.” The virtual screening will take place from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m.

The 25-minute film will screen virtually, followed by a discussion panel with Teaching Specialist, Professor Toby Rosenthal and Holocaust survivor Leo Ullman, whose story of resilience is told on-screen.

The film highlights the heart-wrenching, true stories of non-Jewish people who harbored persecuted refugees during World War II–all at detrimental risk to themselves and their acquaintances.

In June, Rosenthal’s documentary won the 41st Annual Telly Awards, which honors excellence in television, video, branding, marketing, and more.

This event, which is part of the Stockton Communications Studies Speaker Spotlight program, is sponsored by the Historical Studies Program and the Stockton History Club. To register in advance, click the following link:
