Jewish Film Festival of Dallas: The Last Mentsch at Studio Movie Grill - Dallas / Spring Valley
Nearing the end of his life, Marcus Schwartz longs to return to his Jewish roots and be buried in a Jewish cemetery, but he can no longer prove he is Jewish. Born Menachem Teitelbaum, this story follows a poignant and desperate search by the Holocaust survivor to find his past. Movie stars award-winning German actor Mario Adorf (above).
Immediately following the showing, Professor Zsuzsanna Ozsvath - Leah and Paul Lewis Chair in Holocaust Studies and Director of the Holocaust Studies Program at The University of Texas at Dallas’ Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies - will discuss the film and take questions.
