Classrooms Without Borders, in partnership with Rodef Shalom Congregation and the George Washington University's Rabin Chair Forum, is excited to offer the opportunity to watch the film "Complicit" and engage in a post-film discussion with the filmmaker Robert Krakow in conversation with SS St. Louis Passengers, Sonja Geismar and Eva Wiener.
Complicit is a production of the SS St Louis Legacy Project and is touring as part of the 82nd anniversary of the voyage of the SS St Louis. The film contains rare footage and candid interviews with the heroic Jewish refugees from Germany who were turned away by the United States in June, 1939 and who returned to the US to make extraordinary contributions to American society. It also includes never-before-seen footage of the US Special Envoy Hannah Rosenthal’s exposé of America’s inadequate response to the Jewish refugee crisis of the time.
