Movie Mavens with special GUEST SPEAKER
May 11, 2019 @ 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Movie followed by special Guest Speaker Ellen Kracko.
Ellen will share her experiences growing up in the Shanghai Ghetto and revisiting it as an adult.
Narrated by Academy Award winner Martin Landau, this film recalls the strange-but-true story of thousands of European Jews who were shut out of country after country while trying to escape Nazi persecution in the late 1930s. Left without options or entrance visas, a beacon of hope materialized for them on the other side of the world, Japanese-controlled Shanghai.
