Documentary Film Screening: Above the Drowning Sea
This film tells the story of the dramatic escape of European Jews from Nazi-controlled Europe to Shanghai on the eve of WWII. As Hitlers forces sought to expel the Jews from Europe, no other country would open its doors to the refugees. Their lives at stake, the refugees desperately looked for a way out from what would become the Holocaust. Above the Drowning Sea recounts the courageous intervention of Ho Feng Shan, the Chinese Consul in Vienna who defied his own government and braved the Gestapo to issue visas to the refugees. Free; reservations required.
This event will be in Rothenberg Hall. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.
