‘NUREMBERG’ DOCUMENTARY — Tonight, Thursday, Nov. 10, the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education and the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum are presenting “Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today” at the Glenwood Arts Theatre, 9575 Metcalf Ave. The movie is scheduled to run at the Glenwood Arts through Nov. 17. Filmmaker Sandra Schulberg, who restored the original film (which was never seen in the United States) along with Josh Waletzky, will be on hand to answer questions after each showing on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11 and Nov. 12. Show times are 12:35 p.m., 3 p.m., 5:25 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. each day. Call the box office at 913-642-4404 for more information.

HOLLANDER CONCERT — Concert pianist and Kansas City native David Hollander will perform a free concert at 11:45 a.m. Monday, Nov. 14, in the lobby at the Jewish Community Campus.
The concert is in memory of his parents — Norman and Helen Hollander — who both were members of the Kansas City Philharmonic Orchestra. Sybil Kahn reports that Norman played first chair of the cello section and Helen was in the first violin section. The Hollanders were also involved in activities sponsored by the Jewish Community Center and were instrumental in the founding of Kansas City Young Audiences (as was the late Norman Kahn). David Hollander will be in Kansas City in recognition of KCYA’s 50th anniversary, which will be celebrated at a sold-out concert featuring Idina Menzel Saturday, Nov. 12.
Students, their families and staff of the Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy have been invited to the concert as well as friends of the Hollanders. The concert is open to the community at no charge.

FIRE ALARM FINALE — MCHE executive director Jean Zeldin tells me that the “creative ending” to the Marvin Hamlisch concert on Nov. 3 was the result of steam from the Kauffman Center’s new heating system triggering the smoke alarm. Fortunately, Maestro Hamlisch was only four bars from finishing his performance and guests returned to the dessert reception in good spirits after a 5-minute evacuation. “Nothing could spoil what was an incredibly special evening,” said Zeldin. “Our main regret was that Hamlisch wasn’t able to revel in the enthusiastic standing ovation he certainly would have received. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding.”

REMEMBRANCE SERVICE — Suicide Awareness Survivors Support will host a Remembrance Service for those who have lost a loved one to suicide from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at D. W. Newcomer’s Sons Stine & McClure Chapel, 3235 Gillham Plaza, Kansas City, Mo. The Remembrance Service will coincide with National Survivors of Suicide Day, which is a day of healing for those who have lost someone to suicide. The local organization was formed by Mickey and Bonnie Swade after they lost their 31-year-old son Brett to suicide in December 2003.
