The Last Time I Saw Them, with Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies


Join CPTV’s CUTLINE for the television premiere screening of The Last Time I Saw Them, a mini-documentary highlighting the profound impact family separation had on Holocaust survivors.

Five Holocaust survivors describe the terror of being separated from their parents in this short documentary that draws on recorded testimonies from the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University, New Haven, and historic family photographs.

Following the screening, CUTLINE will host a panel of experts to discuss the film and what history can tell us about a number of current crises we face in the United States today. The panel will consist of:

-Eric Marcus, oral historian (moderator)
-Efrén C. Olivares, Southern Poverty Law Center
-Marci Shore, Yale historian
-Timothy Snyder, Yale historian

This program originally aired on Sunday, February 21, 2021 on CPTV and is now available to watch on-demand above.

Episodes will be available on cptv.org, as well as at video.cptv.org; on YouTube; and on the free Connecticut Public mobile app. (Visit Google Play or the Apple App Store to download the app.)
