Desperate Hours continues to promote interfaith understanding and co-operation in screenings across the country. Victoria has shown the doc and then had very interesting and lively Q&A with the audiences.
Recent events include a screening at The Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore to expand on the theme of the exhibit, Beyond Duty: Diplomats Recognized as Righteous Among the Nations.
The exhibition explores the stories of 9 diplomats who were recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations.”
The stories represent diversity: Different countries of origin, different countries were they operated and different types of rescue actions taken in various stages of the Holocaust. It was a special evening as Jews, Muslims and Christians came together under one roof in today’s troubled times.
A similar showing took place in Los Angeles at Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel in association with Turkish Americans of Southern California.
