The Leadership Institute will honor Holocaust Remembrance Day at a free film screening of Inheritance, set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 15, in the Strand Union Building's Procrastinator Theatre.

Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker James Moll, "Inheritance" is an account of the effects of Nazi horrors on human souls and tells the stories of two women with very different scars from the World War II genocide of Europe's Jews.

Inheritance is the story of Monika Hertwig, the daughter of mass murderer Amon Goeth. Hertwig has spent her life in the shadow of her father's deeds, trying to come to terms with her "inheritance." She seeks out Helen Jonas, who was 15 when she was enslaved by Goeth, and who is one of the few living eyewitnesses to his brutality. The women's meeting unearths questions about how the actions of our parents can continue to ripple through generations.
