Michigan: Capt. Ocskay film, Nov. 22

Three great programs were scheduled by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan this month, kicking off with the innovative Steve Morse, then author Steve Luxenberg (“Annie’s Ghost”) made an appearance.

The next program – on Sunday, November 22 – is a screening of the film, “Captain Ocskay, The Forgotten Hero.”

The film centers on Captain Ocskay who saved 2,000 Jews in 1944-45.

Following the film, JGSMI past president John Kovacs will relate his personal experiences escaping deportation from Miskolc to Auschwitz.

The program runs from 11am-2pm at the Holocaust Memorial Center, Farmington Hills.

Admission: JGSMI members, free; others, $5.

Please RSVP on the JGSMIwebsite.
