The Free Thinking Film Society and B'Nai Brith of Canada are proud to present a Tribute to Raoul Wallenberg, on his 100th birthday.
Film – “Raoul Wallenberg – The Angel of Budapest” Canada, 2006
This is the extraordinary story of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews during WW II, presented through the personal experiences of four Canadians: Susan Vadnay of Montreal, Dr. Erwin Koranyi of Ottawa, and Maria Gomori of Winnipeg, all of whom survived Budapest’s Jewish ghetto, and David Matas, a Winnipeg-based human rights lawyer.
Speaker: David Matas from the B’nai Brith will update us on the latest information on Raoul Wallenberg; and Floralove Katz will sing some songs from the Holocaust.
After the film, the speakers and the music, please join us for a private reception just outside the main auditorium.
