The JHC Film Club will be screening the documentary NUMBERED (2012) followed by guest speaker Ephraim Finch OAM, Executive Director, Melbourne Chevra Kadisha, 1990-2015.

Auschwitz prisoners, both Jewish and non-Jewish, were tattooed with serial numbers, first on their chests and then their left arms. An estimated 400,000 numbers were tattooed in Auschwitz and its sub-camps; only some several thousand survivors are still alive today. NUMBERED is an explosive, highly visual, and emotionally cinematic journey, guided by testimonies and portraits of these survivors.
