Join us for a screening of 82 Names: Syria, Please Don't Forget Us, a documentary film that traces the journey of Mansour Omari, a survivor of torture and imprisonment in Syria. As Omari seeks to rebuild his life in exile and visits sites in Germany that memorialize the victims of the Holocaust, he reflects on how to bring attention to the brutal regime he escaped—and counter extremist ideology in the future. 82 Names is a powerful story of how one man risked his life to document atrocity crimes and bring that evidence to the world. 

82 Names: Syria, Please Don't Forget Us is a co-production of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Maziar Bahari. A discussion will follow the screening.
