Each year the KHRCA offers three fellowships: Understanding the Holocaust, Asian Social Justice: Exploring World War II in Asia, and Identifying and Dealing with Hate Crimes in Our Communities. Students accepted into these competitive programs get an intense history in the topic, hear from speakers and survivors, and perform interviews of people who have been impacted by these events.
The Great Dictator
Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 at 12:10 PM
Chaplin plays two totally opposite roles in his first “talkie”, giving a superb display of his boundless talent for both inspired comedy and powerful drama. One of his masterfully drawn characters is a Jewish barber facing the constant threat of storm troopers and religious persecution. The other is the great dictator, Hynkel, a brilliant lampoon of Adolph Hitler that is awesome proof of Chaplin’s pantomime genius. Released in 1941, 125 minutes.
