Desperate Hours

(Ottawa Premiere)


National Gallery of Canada (Auditorium)

(380 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, K1N 9N4)


Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 19.00

An extraordinary visual documentation of the often-ignored help given by Turkey to the Jews fleeing the Holocaust, with testimonies from the survivors, Desperate Hours tells the stories of those precious few who, in the face of utter darkness, never lost their sight. In telling these little known stories from WWII, the film documents this moment in time, when groups of Muslims, Jews and Christians all worked together to save lives. Victoria Barrett, director and producer of the film and Dr. Michael Berenbaum, executive producer, historian and writer, will be on hand for Q&A with the audience after the presentation and screening

This event is free and open to the public
