Vestal High School will host the premier of the film “Blue Tattoo“, about Holocaust survivor Dina Rosenberg.
The documentary will showcase the personal testimony of Dina Jacobson including her friendship with local folk artist, Joe Crookston and her work with Elmira and Binghamton high school students sharing her experiences as part of the global history curriculum.
The film will be officially released at the International Jewish Film Festival in Buffalo May 18th.
Entrance is free, donations will be accepted to benefit the Raise the Roof campaign to rebuild the synagogue and Hillel Academy. Vestal’s Temple Israel’s roof collapsed in December causing extensive damage to the building.
Dina Jacobson will be present at the screening together with the film’s producers, Rich Kellman and Marty Kerker. DVDs of the film will be available to purchase.
