The Trenton Film Society and Passage Theatre Company will present a free screening of “leben, um zu sagen (live to tell)” a documentary produced by Dan Bauer at the Mill Hill Playhouse, 205 E. Front Street in Trenton, on Sunday, December 9 at 3 p.m. The 30-minute film explores Bauer’s family’s journey from Nazi-occupied Vienna to America and is told through the eyes of his 100-year-old grandmother, his father, and a cousin. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion that will feature Lynne Azarchi, Executive Director

Jersey and Princeton immigration attorney, Ryan Stark Lilienthal. Mr. Lilienthal recently returned from Germany where he explored a trove of locally-archived documents illuminating the experience of relatives deported to, and murdered in, Poland during the Holocaust. About the film, Princeton Public Library’s Susan Conlon said, “I think that Dan has achieved value that will appeal to people on two levels: he has captured this important part of his own family’s story and by sharing it with others can find meaning in it; and as a “document” it

preserve these experiences in their families and with people in their lives.” The film had its premiere at the Princeton Public Library in September. Mr. Bauer’s collaborators on the film include filmmaker Mary Conlon, award-winning producer Susan Wallner, and Emilia LaPenta, who conducted the interviews. For 17 years, Ms. Wallner served as series producer of NJN Public Television’s arts and culture program State of the Arts. As a principal at PCK Media, Wallner is instrumental in the continuing production of that series, which is now a co-production of the New

ton College of NJ. Dan Bauer is a longtime Princeton resident and is the director of public relations at McCarter Theatre Center. In addition, he works with Smart Talk Connected Conversations, serves as a tour guide for Princeton Tour Company, and is a certified indoor cycling instructor at Princeton University’s Dillon Gym. ———

The Princeton Ringers Christmas Concert, under the direction of Rachel Barker, includes the ringing of holiday songs by Princeton Seminary and Princeton University students, spouses, staff, alumni/ ae, and friends. Brothers Robert and William Cor of Aldbourne, Wiltshire, England, developed the first tuned handbells between 1696 and 1724. Originally used by change ringers (who
