Holocaust Filmmaker Wins Young Leadership Award


A national Holocaust association honored 28-year-old Sara Greenberg for a film she made about her family's ties to the Shoah.

Sara Greenberg has been honored with the Young Leadership Award from Blue Card, a national non-profit committed to the well-being of Holocaust survivors at or near the poverty level. The honor was presented to Greenberg at the organization’s 79th Anniversary Benefit and Auction at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

The 28-year-old Philadelphian’s contribution to Shoah remembrance is a film she created in college. As part of a “Family and the Jewish Tradition” class at Yale University taught by Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Greenberg produced a documentary about her family’s connection to the Holocaust. That documentary, B-2247: A Granddaughter’s Understanding, is now shown on Yom Hashoah at the United Nations and used as a teaching tool by the Shoah Foundation.
