Montana State University President Waded Cruzado will make remarks at a community event commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day set at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 1, at the Emerson Cultural Center's Crawford Theater. The event is free and open to the public.

The event observes Yom Hashoa, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, with an internationally recognized date that comes from the Hebrew calendar and corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on that calendar. It also marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

In addition to Cruzado's talk, events will include a brief Holocaust remembrance service and a film screening of "A Film Unfinished" followed by a panel discussion featuring Rabbi Ed Stafman, documentary filmmaker Paula Mozen and film theorist Lucia Ricciardelli. "A Film Unfinished" is a documentary about an outtake reel that cast a new light on a Nazi-propaganda film about the Warsaw Ghetto. The Nazis shot the original film in 1942 to document the lives of Jews in the ghetto. However, the 30-minute reel of outtakes discovered in 1998 unveiled the extent to which the footage of the original film was staged.

Hosted by Congregation Beth Shalom, Holocaust Remembrance Day is sponsored by Gallatin Valley Interfaith Association, Congregation Beth Shalom, Bozeman Film Festival, MSU Jewish Student Association and the MSU Diversity Awareness Office.
