KOLNOA SPECIAL: FORGOTTEN SOLDIER (2019 Dir. Lucile Smith)
Lady Irene Hatter joins Rabbi Julia in conversation, setting the scene for this very moving documentary account of her father Salomon Noach’s fate as one of 6 million refugees in the Europe of the 1940s. Much of the story was unknown for almost 40 years after his death, and it has only come to light through her painstakingly retracing his footsteps. He sold carpets, told jokes, played the black market, but there are intriguing gaps hinting at his possible role also as a spy, and a saviour to many – the ‘Dutch Schindler’.
Narrated by Zoe Wanamaker and Henry Goodman, and the winner of many awards.
Kolnoa guests are welcome to join the Rabbis for a 6pm Chanukah candle lighting and sweet buffet in the Samson Family Concourse, then move to the Council Room at 7pm for the usual Kolnoa savoury buffet and 7.45pm screening.
Free entry, but donations towards catering are invited.
