This shocking documentary pays tribute to the remarkable efforts by a group of mostly Palestinian Jews who labored mightily to make the rescue of the Jews of Europe a priority for American Jews and for the American government. An ardent Zionist and self-appointed political advocate for the millions being slaughtered in Europe, Bergson met with great resistance, leaving a painful legacy. Best known for the Bergson Group's provocative ad campaign, the 1943 Ben Hecht-Kurt Weill pageant "We Will Never Die" that toured the US and the rabbis’ march that same year, Bergson sadly remains an unsung hero to the Jewish people. 

After the film, stay on for a recorded conversation with Pierre Sauvage. He and his guests discuss one of the most contentious periods in American Jewish history and his film paying tribute to the valiant efforts of Peter Bergson to rescue Jews from the Holocaust.

Guest Speakers:

· Rebecca Kook, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, daughter of Peter Bergson

· Laurel Leff, scholar, author "Buried By the Times—The Holocaust and America's Most Important Newspaper"

· David Samuels, writer, and Literary Editor of Tablet Magazine

Please join us on Sunday, March 21 at 3 pm for our live talkback with Pierre Sauvage as he discusses all of the films in his retrospective.
