The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center will hold a live discussion with actor Jesse Eisenberg and directors Jonathan and Claudine Jakubowicz about the film “Resistance” on Monday, Aug. 3, at 7 p.m.

“Resistance” is based on the true story of mime Marcel Marceau’s work with the French Resistance to save tens of thousands of orphans during the Holocaust. Long before he rose to international fame as a mime, Marceau put his fledgling career as an artist on hold to spirit Jewish refugee children out of Nazi-occupied France, even as his own father was murdered at Auschwitz.

“Resistance” is available on demand through Amazon, Apple TV, Direct TV, Vudu, Xbox, Xfinity, Spectrum and YouTube.

The presentation is co-sponsored by Congregation Emanu-El of Westchester, Community Synagogue of Rye, Congregation B’nai Yisrael, Congregation KTI, Greenwich Reform Synagogue, Hebrew Institute of White Plains, Jewish Community Center of Harrison, Westchester Hebrew High School and Young Israel of Scarsdale.
