Toward Justice: A City-Wide Upstander’s ProjectMay 15, 2018, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Besa: The Promise on Tuesday, May 15th at 7:00pm. BESA: The Promise weaves Albania’s heroism in WWII through the journeys of two men.
The first is Norman Gershman, a renowned Jewish-American photographer determined to document first-person accounts of the Albanian Muslims who rescued Jews during the Holocaust.
The other is Rexhep Hoxha, a Muslim-Albanian. Rexhep must fulfill the promise made to a Jewish family his father rescued during the Holocaust and return to them a set of Hebrew prayer books they left behind.
