AFME 2014 Presents: Ensemble

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

Jewish Shorts
Friday June 6 ~ 4:30 pm
Lobo Theater

Paris, 1942. Isaac a Jewish child, escapes the Nazis, he finds refuge in the Mosquée of Paris where Ahmed, (Si Kaddour Benghabrit 1830 -1962) the Imam in charge, takes him under his protection.

Ahmed then started to save as many children as he could, preventing them from a certain death ... until he was arrested ....

A poignant story based on true events, though it is still impossible to evaluate the exact number of lives saved through these extraordinary acts of bravery, the estimates range between 600 and 1500.
