AFME Presents: Refuge

A Film of Jewish Interest: The Albuquerque Film & Media Experience is proud to present:

Stories of the Self-Help Home
Wednesday June 5 ~ 1:00 pm
The Lobo Theatre

In the late 1930s, following the ferocious anti-Jewish violence of Kristallnacht, a determined group of young German Jews left behind everything that was dear and familiar and immigrated to Chicago.

Here, these refugees set out to create a supportive community for themselves and others fleeing Nazi persecution, eventually establishing the Selfhelp Home for the oldest among them.   

Refuge weaves together historical narrative, archival footage and deeply personal testimony to explore the lives of six Chicagoans against the context of the Nazi cataclysm and how a small group of them came together to care for their own.

Purchase tickets here at Hold My Ticket. View the trailer here.
