Angels of Austria:The Church That Reached Out To Holocaust Survivors
July 1, 2009
All her adult life in America, Trudy, a Jewish refugee from Austria, blamed herself for failing to rescue her father from the Nazis. Just as she began to share her father's letters that she had tucked away for over fifty years, she received an unusual invitation from a church in Austria in 1995, asking her to return to her hometown for a week of friendship, seeking forgiveness for their country's crimes of the Holocaust. But how can Trudy forgive them, when she hasn't even forgiven herself? Is it possible to heal from the Holocaust? The daughter, Judy Faust, tells the story and explores the challenging and rewarding journey to forgiveness. Discussion and Q & A with audience and filmmaker follows screening.
