The documentary Dear Fredy tells the story of Fredy Hirsch, a Jew, an athlete, and an openly gay man who fled Germany after the passage of the Nuremberg Laws.  In the Czech Republic, he continued to inspire more than 4,000 young people in the Ghetto Terezin.  When many were deported to Auschwitz, Hirsch convinced the infamous Dr. Mengele to let him oversee a daycare center for some 600 children, where Fredy gave them hope in a place of death and despair.

A post screen discussion will reflect on heroic actions of other Upstanders within the LGBTQ+ community.
