The Making of a Danish Rescue Film: A Day in October

October 1, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the Holocaust Center for a virtual interview moderated by Lori Weintrob with A Day in October director/producer Kenneth Madsen and writer Damian Slattery.

Denmark was the only occupied country to actively resist the Nazi deportation of its Jewish citizens. On the 77th anniversary of the historic Danish Rescue that saved 7,200 Jews, we revisit the film A Day in October, 30 years after its filming on location. This dramatic and compelling rescue and resistance narrative brings one Danish family’s story to life.

This program is made possible through a partnership between the Museum of Jewish Heritage and Wagner College Holocaust Center.

Pre-registration required. For more information or to register visit mjhnyc.org/events/.
