Time & Location
About the Event
A Special Screening of "The End of the Line."
The final days of WWII told through the experiences of Louis Sneh, a Hungarian-Jewish teenager in 1945, who was transported by train from a Nazi labor camp to “the end of the line.” The death-train departed Dachau sub-camp Muehldorf Mettenheim in April 1945 loaded with 4,000 prisoners, on what would become a five-day odyssey through Bavaria. Headed for certain death, the train instead took prisoners from desperation to deliverance as it was liberated by a unit of General Patton’s Third Army in the town of Seeshaupt. Mr. Sneh, who was 17 at the time, chillingly tells of the camp, the cold freight car, incidents at the train stations, the liberation in Seeshaupt, and the reactions of local Germans confronted with concrete evidence of the Nazi State’s horrific actions.
Mr. Sneh will join us for Questions and Answers via video conferencing
from his home in Los Angeles immediately following the screening.
