Film Screening: An Unknown Country

Tuesday, 11 February, 2020 16 Sh'vat 5780

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Westminster Synagogue invites you to a screening of An Unknown Country. This documentary tells the inspiring story of European Jews who fled Nazi persecution to find refuge in an unlikely destination: Ecuador.
  
Featuring first-hand accounts and archival material, the film opens a window on the exiles’ perilous escape and difficult adjustment as they remade their lives in what was for them an exotic unfamiliar land. 
 
Their poignant experience is a lesson in survival and adaptation - a story now more timely than ever as forced emigration has become a major issue of our time.

Director Eva Zelig will be joining us for an informative Q&A session after the film, so make sure you don’t miss out on this fascinating evening.
