A Refugee Story: The MS. St. Louis with Robert Krakow, Esq. and Eva Wiener – The St. Petersburg Celebration of the Arts
February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
As part of the St. Petersburg Celebration of the Arts, The Florida Holocaust Museum in partnership with the S.S. St. Louis Legacy Project presents: A Refugee Story: The MS. St. Louis with Robert Krakow, Esq. and Eva Wiener.
Enjoy free, on-demand screening of the award-winning documentary film, “Complicit” – the untold story of why President Roosevelt and the State Department refused safe haven to Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazis on the MS St. Louis.
Watch the film for free from January 24th to February 4th:
“Complicit” blends drama, survivor interviews, and actual footage to tell the story of the doomed MS St. Louis ship, which left Germany in an attempt to escape Nazi persecution and gain entry into the United States through Cuba. After weeks at sea pleading with the U.S., Canadian, and Cuban governments, the MS. St. Louis had no choice but to return to Europe, where it is estimated that over one quarter of her passengers perished in German concentration camps.
On February 4th at 6:30 p.m.:
Join The FHM for a free, virtual program, streaming on our FB Live, featuring “Complicit” creator and producer, Robert Krakow, Esquire, and surviving refugee passenger from the MS. St. Louis, Eva Wiener. Following the presentation, engage with Mr. Krakow and Ms. Eva Wiener during a live Q&A.
