$ Cost $ 10.00

Register in advance for a film screening of Rescue in the Philippines. A Q&A with the film’s Senior Consultant, Dr. Barbara Sasser, will follow the screening.

Rescue in the Philippines recounts the previously untold story of how the five Frieder brothers, Cincinnati businessmen making two-for-a-nickel cigars in pre-WWII Manila—together with Manuel Quezon, the charismatic first president of the Philippines, Paul McNutt, US High Commissioner and former governor of Indiana (preparing for his own presidential campaign), and an ambitious Army Colonel named Dwight Eisenhower—helped 1,300 Jews escape the Nazis and immigrate to the Philippines.


We are very excited that you will join us for this screening and the Q&A with Dr. Sasser. The ticket cost is $10.
