Dramatic Reading of “The Gerda Letters” by local actor and community leader JoAn Segal. When hiding from the Nazis in the Netherlands, these compelling letters were sent to Gerda from her family in Berlin, Germany. JoAn was a friend of Gerda and her husband. Holocaust survivor Anita Budding, a Boulder resident, will be part of the panel discussion following the reading.

Immigration Ministry is sponsoring the Sunday Night Forum, on February 23rd, beginning at 6:30 pm.. This will NOT be in our usual Sunday night format! Instead we will be offering a series of vignettes, drawn from the Motus Theatre production entitled “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?” These short, powerful monologues will be delivered by members of the troupe — as the actors describe their own personal experiences; accompanied by musical interludes. The performance will be suitable for school-age children (that’s why we will begin earlier than usual). Childcare will be provided, upon request. A time for discussion, feedback and questions will follow. Representative Jared Polis — or a member of his staff, have promised to be there.
In January 2003, Norman Solomon and Reese Erlich accurately predicted many of the Iraq War’s disasters in their book Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You. There were no weapons of mass destruction; the overthrow of Saddam Hussein would lead to a pro-Iranian government in Baghdad; and the country could face a long civil war. Over the past 10 years Solomon has continued to be one the country’s best known media critics as head of the Institute for Public Accuracy. In 2012 he ran for Congress as an anti-war Democrat in northern California. Erlich has reported from Iraq a total of four times and made numerous trips to Syria and other nearby countries on assignment for CBC (Canada) Radio, the Daily Beast, Global Post, NPR and others. They will discuss the significance of the Iraq War and offer a critique of current media coverage of the region.
