Sarah's Key is one of two film screenings in the Borough to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD), which provides an opportunity for everyone to learn the lessons from the Holocaust and on this day we remember the millions who were murdered.
One of the darkest moments in French history occurred in 1942 Paris when French officials rounded up over 10,000 Jews and placed them in local camps. Eventually over 8,000 were sent off to German concentration camps. As 10-year old Sarah and her family are arrested, she hides her younger brother in a closet. After realising she is not allowed to go home, Sarah does whatever she can to get back to her brother. In 2009, a journalist named Julia is on assignment to write a story on the deported Jews in 1942. When she moves into her father-in-law's childhood apartment, she realises it once belonged to the Strazynski family, and their daughter Sarah.
This is a screening in partnership with UK Jewish Film.
