Besa: Albanian Promises Kept

Tue, 16 Jul, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Albania, a small Muslim-majority country, proved a surprising refuge for the Jewish community of central Europe during the Holocaust. Thanks to Besa, an Albanian concept sometimes translated as “pledge of honor,” and an oath sworn by much of the population requiring individuals to come to the aid of those in need, this country became a safe haven for Jews escaping Nazi persecution. Join us as we hear the story of one family’s experience from second generation survivors Eli and Benjy Neumann.

 

This program is part of the Recovery & Renewal: The Immigration Experience series.
