Baruch College to Host “The Flat” Film Screening

The Flat

NEW YORK, NY March 2, 2016 –  The Wasserman Jewish Studies Center, located in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College will host a screening of “The Flat”, the award-winning documentary film from director Arnon Goldfinger. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

The flat, on the third floor of a Bauhaus building in Tel Aviv, was where Arnon Goldfinger’s grandparents lived since they immigrated to Palestine. Were it not for the view from the windows, one might have thought that the flat was in Berlin . . . furnished with heavy European pieces and bookcases filled with the best of German literature. Then, at age ninety-eight, his grandmother died. Objects, pictures, letters, and documents awaited, revealing the complex lives of his grandparents Gerda and Kurt Tuchler, as well as clues to a troubled and painful past.
