Dir. Nicolo Donato 2016, Denmark
In the lead up to Holocaust Memorial Day 2019, this dark but gripping drama tells the story of the escape of Jews from Denmark to Sweden during WWII with the help of local people and boatmen. We are privileged to welcome WLS member and good friend, part-Danish film and theatre maker, Alexander Bodin Saphir to join us for the post screening discussion. Alex has researched the history of this less well known period of Holocaust history and has a well informed and alternative view on events. His own stage play (Rosenbaum’s Rescue – parktheatre.co.uk) exploring that alternative narrative is presented from 9 January – 9 February at the Park Theatre, Finsbury Park. We have a limited number of discounted tickets for WLS KOLNOA attendees. (Contact Jim on 07768 455667 to join the list)
No charge for admission, but contributions towards costs are warmly welcomed.
