Register here to for Screening of Eva's Promise and Q&A with Co-Producer Susan Kerner
On a train to Auschwitz, 17-year-old Heinz Geiringer told his sister Eva that he hid his paintings and poetry beneath the attic floor boards. Heinz made Eva promise, if he should die in the camps, she would retrieve the artwork. Today, his story sits in the shadow of the better-known Diary of Anne Frank. After the war, Eva became the posthumous stepsister of Anne when her mother married Anne's father. While the world knows Anne's story, this film introduces Heinz, his artistry, and his sister's efforts to find and share his remarkable legacy. Following the showing of the documentary, there will be a Q & A session with Co-Producer Susan Kerner.
