Why Am I Here?

Why am I here.jpgTuesday, November 5 at 4 pm — Victoria International Jewish Film Festival (VIJFF) Presents the World Premiere of “Why Am I Here?” on Tuesday, November 5, 4 pm at The Vic Theatre, 808 Douglas Street, Victoria sponsored by The Victoria Shoah Project. The film will be followed by Q & A with film subject Julius Maslovat and Executive Producer Helga Thornson.  Tickets: http://dash.ticketrocket.co/tour/57

Long-time Victoria resident Julius Maslovat grew up knowing he was a child survivor of the Holocaust, but had few answers for how and why he lived.  In this locally produced film, which is premiering at the VIJFF, Maslovat describes the chance discoveries and dogged research that allowed him to piece together his remarkable history. Julius Maslovat was among the youngest of only 5,000 children under the age of 16 who survived the Nazi concentration camps. This is his incredible story.  Julius Maslovat often speaks to local groups about how he answered the existential question, “Why Am I Here?”
