Holocaust Survivor Event and Film
Jewish Senior Life’s Program for Holocaust
Survivors and Families (PHSF) presents Eli’s Story, a new film
about survivor Eliezer Ayalon, Wed., April 24, 7 p.m. at the Maple Theater in
Bloomfield Hills as part of an evening honoring Detroit-area Holocaust
As Eli’s ghetto in Poland began to be evacuated to the death
camp in 1941, his mother sent him away so he’d survive. As they
separated, she gave him a cup of honey, a symbol of the sweet life of spreading
hope she wanted him to live.
The film, by local filmmaker Allyson Rockwell and Dr. Shari
Rogers, will air later this year on DPTV. This theatrical premiere honors
Detroit’s remaining survivors and the Grosfeld Mission Leaders for the missions
of hope Eli inspired.

Greetings from Detroit Public TV.
The Bletchley Circle comes to Sunday nights starting 4/21 at 10pm
The Bletchley Circle follows Susan, Millie, Lucy and Jean, ordinary women with
extraordinary ability to break codes, a skill honed during World War II when
they worked undercover at Bletchley Park, site of the United Kingdom's main
decryption establishment. Now, in 1952, the four have returned to civilian
life, keeping their intelligence work secret from all, including family and
friends. A series of ghastly murders targeting women, however, reunites the
team as they set out to decode the pattern behind the crimes.
Make sure to tune in every Sunday from 7pm - Midnight for our night of British drama, including Death in Paradise at 7, Call the Midwife at 8, Mr. Selfridge at 9, Bletchley Circle at 10, and MI-5 at 11.
