The Rescuers (virtual screening)

January 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Mandell JCC of Greater Hartford is presenting a special FREE virtual screening of the remastered film, The Rescuers, on Virtual J. The event will feature a post-film discussion with a renowned panel of experts who will explore a theme from the film; The Mystery of Goodness: What leads one person and not another, to do the right thing consequences they may face? 

The Rescuers, produced by philanthropist Joyce D. Mandell and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Michael King, uncovers the largely unknown stories of 13 heroic and courageous diplomats who, at tremendous personal cost, saved tens of thousands of Jews during World War II.

Often going against their own government policies, these diplomats, many of whom were not Jewish, willingly sacrificed their careers, families, and livelihood, working desperately to save people they did not know. The film follows a renowned 20th century and Holocaust historian across 15 countries and three continents, interviewing survivors and descendants of these diplomats.
