Syndrome K  is film is the true story about a highly contagious, highly infectious, invented disease created by three Roman Catholic doctors to hide Jews during the holocaust.  Patients in this hospital’s ward had been hospitalized and classified as suffering from Syndrome K in late 1943. In October of that year, the Nazis combed the Jewish ghetto and other areas of Rome, deporting about 1,200 Jews. Of the Jews deported, only 15 survived the camps. After this, the hospital’s doctors and religious leaders welcomed increasing numbers of patients. These patients were “infected” with Syndrome K  as a way to spare them from deportation to the camps. The archives at Yad Vashem (Holocaust Museum) in Israel and at the Vatican maintain the information about the Righteous Jews involved. A Righteous Jew is a person who rescues one or more Jews from the threat of death, deportation or death camps. The film is in Italian, with English subtitles and lasts 80 minutes.

Annually on Jan. 27 activities take place around the world to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, to acknowledge and condemn the tragedy of the Holocaust that occurred during the Second World War. Designated by the United Nations General Assembly by resolution on Nov. 1, 2005, International Holocaust Remembrance Day acknowledges the genocide that resulted in the deaths of 6 million Jews and 11 million others, by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. The General Assembly marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust with this resolution.

An additional screening about Holocaust survivors will take place Feb. 16-18. Nobody Was Interested, Nobody Asked is the story of holocaust survivors’ experience in Canada. Thursday, Feb. 18, evening there will be a Zoom discussion with director Max Beer, and producer Deena Clusy-Apel. The film is in English and lasts 60 minutes.
