Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport

A Film/Discussion Series with Harold Chapler

The stories of eleven young Jewish children sent by their parents from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia to England. Now, years later, the children, a mother, an English foster mother, a survivor of Auschwitz who didn’t go to England, and two Kindertransport organizers remember the time: writing home, fearing the worst, coping, and trying to find families after the war ends. Narrated by Judy Dench.

Prague

A Film/Discussion Series with Harold Chapler

A hit of the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. A quiet Danish filmmaker and his beautiful wife have been drifting apart for 15 years. They appear cordial, but old memories surface as they travel from Denmark to Prague to collect the remains of the filmmaker’s late father.
