Documentary Film: Harbor from the Holocaust

August 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Join us for a virtual preview of the new PBS documentary, Harbor from the Holocaust, on Thursday, August 27 at 12 p.m. The documentary, which airs on September 8 at 10 p.m. on WUCF, chronicles the story of nearly 20,000 Jewish refugees who fled Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II, to the Chinese port city of Shanghai. Exploring the extraordinary relationship of these Jews and their adopted city of Shanghai, and in tragic contrast to those who could not escape, this is a Holocaust story of life. The screening will be followed by a live virtual conversation with:

Sigmund Tobias, Shanghai Survivor
Violet Du Feng, Director
Joanie Holzer Schirm, Author, My Dear Boy
Frank Xu, Shanghai historian
