"Across the Waters" to be screened at 2pm on Saturday, Jan. 27 at Mystic Luxury Cinemas in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance day

Israel chose the 27th of Nisan, a few days after Passover, as the official date to commemorate the Holocaust. The commemorations began in Israel in 1951 and the date was codified by the Israeli Parliament in 1959. It marks the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Revolt and its full name is the Day of the Holocaust and the Heroism.

In 2005 the United Nations chose January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Soviet troops.
This year the Mystic Seaport, the Jewish Federation of Eastern Connecticut, and the Jewish Heritage Museum in NYC will mark the day with a screening of "Across the Waters" about the rescue of the Jews of Denmark at 2 pm at the Mystic Luxury Cinemas.
