Surviving Skokie

 

Synopsis

They survived the horrors of the Holocaust and came to America to put the past behind. For decades they kept their awful memories secret. But their silence ended when a band of neo-Nazi thugs threatened to march in their quiet village of Skokie, Illinois "because that is where the Jews are." "Surviving Skokie" is an intensely personal documentary by former Skokie resident Eli Adler about the events of the 1970s, their aftermath, his family's horrific experience of the Shoah, and a journey with his father to confront long-suppressed memories.
