Once in a Lifetime : on the impact of Memory on the younger French generations

From March 12th to the 25th, as part of the Jewish International Film Festival, the Holocaust Film Series and Elsternwick Classics Cinemas will present thirty new movies and share the stories narrated by talented film makers from all around the world. French movie Once in a lifetime (Les Hériters), which came out in France in December 2014, will also be screened.

Based on a true story, Once in a Lifetime tells the story of an history teacher using a competition around the theme “Children and teenagers in Nazi concentration camps” to muster her class of unprivileged and violent teenagers. As it deals with the impact of Holocaust education and memory on younger generation, the movie serves as an ode to France’s beloved equality and fraternity.
