(Casper, Wyo.) - Larry Cappetto, independent filmmaker, author, musician, and producer of the highly acclaimed award-winning Public Broadcasting Service series “Lest They Be Forgotten,” will present two documentaries: “The Holocaust Remembered” on Tuesday, April 19 and “9/11 Remembered” on Wednesday, April 20 for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Casper College. “The Holocaust Remembered” (OLLI 7078) documents the horror of Kristallnacht; the invasion of Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, and other countries over taken by the Nazis; the formation of the ghettos and deportation; and life in the ghettos. According to Vicki Pollock, lifelong learning specialist, Cappetto will share personal recollections of the survivors that he interviewed for the film. The second film, “9/11 Remembered” (OLLI 7079) features 22 survivors of 9/11 and their stories. “These people were at ground zero on the fateful day that changed the face of our country’s history forever,” said Pollock. She noted that Cappetto would also share personal recollections of the survivors that he interviewed for the documentary during the class.
