The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Polo Club Boca Raton will host Glenn Kurtz, author of Three Minutes in Poland: Discovering a Lost World in a 1938 Family Film (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2014), as he recounts the extraordinary discoveries made when he donated his grandfather’s home-movie footage to the Museum’s Steven Spielberg Film and Video Archive. The program is part of the Museum’s National Conversation exploring the ongoing relevance of the Holocaust.

Taken in Poland on the eve of World War II, these candid images of a small Jewish community called Nasielsk now serve as a memorial to an entire town annihilated in the Holocaust.

The free program is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at the BallenIsles Country Club at 100 BallenIsles Circle.
