Special Screening of Besa: The Promise

Special Guest the President of Albania

The never-before-told story of Albania, the small European country which opened its borders to shelter Jewish refugees, even as it endured a brutal Nazi occupation. A Muslim-Albanian must fulfill the promise his father made to a Jewish family he rescued during the Holocaust. When he meets a Jewish photographer who seek to capture the Albanian bravery, an extraordinary and utterly unexpected personal drama is set in motion – one that bridges generations and religions…uniting fathers and sons…Muslims and Jews.

Co-presented by the International Raul Wallenberg Foundation
