3G Philly presents "The Cure for Hate"
This virtual event will be held on Tuesday, May 16th from 7:00-8:00 PM. Registrants will be given a link to view the 90 minute documentary two weeks prior to the event to preview the film in advance. The program features an introduction about Tony McAleer and producer, Peter Hutchinson, a moderated discussion, and 30 minutes for Q&A from the audience.
The Cure For Hate traces former neo-Nazi and Holocaust denier Tony McAleer’s journey of atonement to bear witness to the horrors of Auschwitz and examine the throughline to modern day violent extremism. The film serves as Holocaust education at its most urgent and personal, and a powerful argument for radical compassion in the face of division.
