Event Description

In Harbor from the Holocaust (60 min.), director Violet Du Feng shares the story of 20,000 Jewish refugees who fled Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II to the city of Shanghai. The film explores the remarkable experiences of these Jews in their adopted city, including the bitter years of Japanese occupation 1937-1945 and the Chinese civil war that followed. Through personal recollections, interviews with historians, archival footage and music, the documentary tells the story of a group of people who, in tragic contrast with those who could not escape, were given a second chance. Join WKAR for a special screening of the film, followed with a discussion with the filmmaker Violet Feng. Visit wkar.org for more details.
