The Rescue: A Live Film-Concerto

In commemoration of the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht

Discover the untold story of the diplomat from El Salvador who saved the lives of 13,000 Jews during the Holocaust.

The Museum is proud to partner with the Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre, the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg and the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs in commemorating the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht.

In 1942, José Arturo Castellanos was the Salvadoran ambassador to Switzerland. Seeing the plight of European Jews trying to flee Nazi persecution, he issued more than 13,000 Salvadoran nationality papers to Jews in Hungary, Romania, France, the Netherlands and Germany. Today, his grandsons Alvaro and Boris Castellanos have created The Rescue, a film on their grandfather’s legacy and the power we all have to help those seeking refuge.

The Rescue: A Live Film-Concerto is an innovative and engaging way of telling the story of Col. Castellanos and the thousands he saved, combining the film with a live concert performance of its musical soundtrack by a six-piece Latin chamber orchestra.

The screening of The Rescue will be accompanied by commentary from Museum curator Dr. Jeremy Maron. A question and answer session will follow the film screening.

Seating is limited.
