Surviving Skokie is an intensely personal documentary by former Skokie resident Eli Adler about the provocative events of the 1970s, and a journey with his father to confront long-suppressed memories.
In “Surviving Skokie,” the filmmaker’s father, Jack Adler—a Polish Holocaust survivor—confronts his own past, returning to Poland with his son to tell the stories of family members who perished in the ghetto and death camps. It is the story of a community’s battle against the voices and gestures of hate, of a quiet village and its once-turbulent history, and of the importance of speaking up and out.
Eli Adler has been a professional cinematographer/director for more than 30 years, winning numerous awards, including the CINE Golden Eagle and two national Emmys, for his work. As a child of a Holocaust survivor, he has led several Holocaust-related films, including “Hope Out of the Ashes” (1985), “Loosening The Grip” (1999), and “One Day In Auschwitz” (2015). He was also a prolific contributor to the Shoah Foundation Interview Program (in the San Francisco Bay Area.)
