On Wednesday, April 18th, 2012, the USOSCE held an exclusive screening of Michael King’s new documentary ‘The Rescuers’ to a packed auditorium. The film was followed by a panel discussion featuring King, the film’s producer Joyce D. Mandell, and Holocaust experts Rabbi Andrew Baker and Edward Serrotta.

‘The Rescuers’ tells the stories of 13 brave diplomats who, at tremendous risk to themselves, saved thousands of Jews during World War II. The film follows Stephanie Nyombayire, a young Rwandan anti-genocide activist who lost 100 members of her family in the Rwandan Genocide of the 1990s, and Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned 20th century and Holocaust historian, as they travel across 15 countries and three continents interviewing survivors and descendants of the diplomats.
