PASSAGE TO SWEDEN

Virtual Film Screening

July 29 – August 5, 2021
The link to view the film will be posted here on July 29th.


Rescue & Escape –  Passage To Sweden tells the lesser-known story of events occurring in Scandinavia and Budapest during WWII. It focuses on the extraordinary heroic actions of ordinary people who saved the lives of thousands of Jews and fellow countrymen.  Special attention is paid to the Norwegian resistance, the citizens of Denmark, Raoul Wallenberg, and Count Folke Bernadotte, all of whom showed exemplary courage during the darkest of times. View the trailer on the film’s website.

HOLOCAUST DENIAL


Despite being one of the best documented genocides in history, many have attempted to distort facts about the Holocaust or deny that it occurred. Perpetrators began to deny the Holocaust even as it was still happening, and denial continues to this day. Join Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum’s Dr. Sara Abosch-Jacobson, Barbara Rabin Chief Education Officer, and Dr. Charlotte Decoster, Ackerman Family Director of Education, to explore the history of Holocaust denial, the forms it takes, and the impact of denial.
