Thursday, April 20, 7pm: Screening of the film, “Turkish Passport,” which tells the story of Turkish Embassy and Consulate diplomats in Europe who saved Jews during World War II. They not only saved Turkish Jews, they also rescued foreign Jews condemned to death by giving them Turkish passports. In this dark period of history, they lit the candle of hope and allowed these people to travel to Turkey, where they found light.
Sunday, April 23, 5pm: Screening of the film “50 Children,” which relates the risks and dangers of Gilbert and Eleanor – a Philadelphia lawyer and his beautiful wife – who undertook a mission that would plunge both of them into the heart of Nazi Germany. They were determined to return to the United States with Jewish children whose parents had become increasingly desperate to escape from the ongoing Nazi terror. Featuring filmmaker Steven Pressman. Made possible by the Legacy and Rabbi’s Discretionary Funds.
Followed by the moving Yom Ha-Shoah service at 7pm
“Rosenwald” was directed by Aviva Kempner, director of “The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg” and “Yoo-hoo Mrs. Goldberg.”
'Rosenwald' doc will reaffirm your faith in the American dream says the Daily Herald.
Born in the heart of the Land of Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois; Julius Rosenwald, the son of German-Jewish immigrants, rose to become one of the wealthiest men in America as well as a beloved humanitarian. As the son of a German Jewish clothier, he went into the family business. He then teamed up with Richard Sears to build Sears, Roebuck and Co. He became Sears President from 1908–1924 and was its chairman 1924-1932.
In partnership with Booker T. Washington, Rosenwald seeded for the creation of more than 5,500 schools for poor, rural African-American children in southern states at a time when few received any public education. From 1915 to 1932, 660,000 rural southern African-American students benefited from an initiative that truly speaks to The American Dream.
