When 10-year-old Elliott Saiontz asked his 90-year-old great-grandfather Jack Feldman about the number tattooed on his arm, he sparked an intimate conversation about Jack’s life that embraced happy memories of his childhood in Poland, the loss of his family, surviving Auschwitz, and finding a new life in America. This conversation became the 2018 short HBO documentary The Number on Great-Grandpa’s Arm, which provides children and their families a gentle introduction to the subject of the Holocaust.
Catch up with Elliott three years later for this special Hanukkah family program, which will include a screening of the 19-minute film, followed by a live conversation between Elliott and his mother Stacey Saiontz (a Trustee of the Museum). Elliott and Stacey will conclude with a family candle-lighting for the sixth night of Hanukkah.
