Rescuers: Then and Now (Wallenberg Program)

Rescuers: Then and Now (Wallenberg Program)

Recorded LIVE on Sunday, January 17, 2021 at 7:30 PM

Join the Neuberger on January 17, when we will be marking Raoul Wallenberg Day with a special program exploring the legacies and memory of rescue, during the Holocaust and today. From 15 to 17 of January, audiences will have access to The Crossing, a 2020 film that tells the story of how two young Norwegian children helped two Jewish children flee to neutral Sweden to escape the Nazis and reunite with their parents. The Crossing celebrates the courageous actions taken by ordinary children, and reminds the audience about the extraordinary steps it can take to save another. The Neuberger will show a video produced by George Prager on the memory of Wallenberg, and will be joined Winnie Luk, the Managing Director of Rainbow Railroad, where we will discuss the legacy of Raoul Wallenberg's extraordinary actions, and explore what efforts are being taken today to help people around the world experienced state-sanctioned violence and persecution.
