The Rescuers directed by award-winning filmmaker Michael King, traces the effort of twelve diplomats who served in Europe during the Holocaust and, at great risk to themselves and at times their loved ones, assisted Jews in their attempt to flee Nazi persecution. The film follows Sir Martin Gilbert and Stephanie Nyombayire, a survivor of the Rwandan Genocide who has become an anti-genocide activist. Gilbert was an acclaimed and prolific British historian, who is one of the foremost historians on the Holocaust. An after-film discussion will be hosted by the Mandel JCC Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival Director Ellen Wedner and features Film Director Michael King and Film Producer Joyce Mandell.
