For 70 years, Nathan Hilu was unable to stop drawing, flooded with memories from the days when the US military assigned him to guard top Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials, keeping them from committing suicide before their verdict was announced. Born to a Syrian Jewish family that immigrated to the States, Hilu remembered with vivid clarity the encounters that changed his life, but what really happened in Nuremberg? Did his vivid memories deceive him? To commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, join “Nathan-ism” documentary director Elan Golod, for a discussion of the film and reflections on art as memory.
