In this film, a group of Czech Jewish teenagers sets out on a journey to the North. Without their parents to look after them, they must rely on each other. That’s how their great adventure starts. They spend four years in Denmark, an oasis in the midst of raging WWII. More than seventy years later, they are ready to tell their story, a coming-of-age refugee story with a happy ending, courtesy of thousands of openhearted Danes.

Prof. Tatjana Lichtenstein, Associate Professor of History and director of the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies, who is of Czech/Danish origin, will give a short introduction.

 

Co-sponsored by the University of Texas Libraries and the Schusterman Center.
