"Refuge: Stories of the Selfhelp Home” (60 minutes) ’REFUGE’ is a one-hour documentary that reaches back over 70 years to give a voice to the last generation of victims of Nazi persecution. The film weaves together historical narrative, archival footage and deeply personal testimony to explore the lives of six Chicagoans against the context of the Nazi cataclysm and tell the story of a singular community that has given refuge to more than 1,000 Central European Jewish refugees and survivors. Filmmaker Ethan Bensinger will join us!
