50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus by Steven Pressman (US, 2013, 63 min.). In 1939, when much of the world closed its eyes to rising Nazi terror, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, a Jewish American couple from Philadelphia, risked everything to save Jewish children. Travelling to Nazi-controlled Vienna, the Krauses executed a bold plan that brought the largest group of children into the U.S. during that time. "Heart-wrenching, thrilling and above all relevant," New York Times. Co-sponsored by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Discussion with director and Dr. Robert Williams, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, follows screening.
