About the Event

Film poster for "Nasty Girl"The True Story of Anna Rosmus who confronted the conspiracy of silence in her hometown of Passau, Germany after World War II.

As a teenager in the 1970’s, Anna Rosmus embarked on a research project: What had her city (Passau, Germany) done to help the Jews during the Nazi era? What began as an innocent question turned into a lifelong project when Rosmus realized why her fellow citizens were doing everything in their power to prevent her from discovering the truth. Filmmaker Michael Verhoeven turned her story into an Oscar-nominated feature film called Nasty Girl (Das schreckliche Mädchen) in 1990. Join us for a screening of the film.

On November 9, you are invited to attend an in-person conversation with Dr. Anna Rosmus
