Greensboro College will observe International Holocaust Remembrance Day, featuring a film showing followed by a panel discussion. The event is free and open to the public.

The event begins at 7 p.m. in Hannah Brown Finch Memorial Chapel on campus with a showing of the 1999 movie "Jakob the Liar", starring comedian Robin Williams. Williams portrays a shopkeeper in German-occupied Warsaw, Poland, during World War II who accidentally overhears a forbidden radio broadcast reporting Allied military successes against Germany. He tells a friend, and then rumors begin flying through the Jewish ghetto of a forbidden radio. These rumors spark hope among the depressed and even suicidal ghetto residents, but they also spark a search by the Nazis for the nonexistent radio.

After the film showing, a panel discussion will follow. Jonathan Epstein, associate professor of sociology and director of the college's Holocaust Program and Document Collection, will moderate.
