In partnership with the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, One Sky presents: Hope in the Midst of Conflict

AGENDA


SUNDAY – OCTOBER 14 – 2018

THE CHILDREN OF CHABANNES – FILM SCREENING
PRESENTED BY THE WASSMUTH CENTER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

The people of a tiny village in unoccupied France chose action over indifference and saved the lives of 400 Jewish refugee children during World War II. Not just a story about the past; it is an exploration of moral courage and goodness in the face of evil – of what motivates individuals to take a stand against injustice, bigotry and extremism. (NR)

“A moving record of the unassuming, uncompromising heroism of ordinary people.” (NY Times)

This book has not always been Marty’s main work.
