Event Details

Our popular documentary film and discussion series continues.

Join us for a screening of 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus.

Share your thoughts about the film and enjoy some popcorn! In the spring of 1939, a Jewish lawyer and his wife left their comfortable home and two children in Philadelphia and embarked on a bold and improbable plan to rescue fifty children from Nazi-controlled Vienna. Despite the oncoming horrors of the Holocaust, Gil and Eleanor Kraus bravely traveled into the heart of the Nazi empire in an effort to save innocent lives. Their unlikely mission would turn an ordinary American couple into extraordinary heroes.

Special guest appearance by the Director, Writer, & Producer of the film, Steven Pressman, who will lead our Q&A following the screening.
