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 will convene the filmmakers of the 1991 film A Day in October – a dramatic and compelling resistance narrative that brings one Jewish family’s story to life. The rescue operation will be examined in comparative perspective with insights from screenwriter Damian Slattery, director Kenneth Madsen, and actors Tovah Feldshuh and Kelly Wolf, who star in the film. This program will be moderated by Wagner Holocaust Center Director Lori Weintrob.
