Event description

Description

The Yazidi Rescue Committee presents its inaugural fundraising event on May 26th, 2019, a Film Concerto For Yazidis - a multimedia evening of film, music, and food. The incredible documentary film "The Rescue" will be shown, accompanied by a live band. "The Rescue" tells the incredible story of Colonel Jose Arturo Castellanos Contreras. As head of the El Salvadorian Consulate in Geneva during WW2, he turned the consulate into a secret printing press which provided documents that saved more than 50,000 Jews from death at the hands of the Nazis. Castellanos is commemorated at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, yet very few people know about his heroic efforts to save so many persecuted and innocent men, women and children. Had he been alive today he would have told us to “Save the Yazidi.” To view the film trailer and learn more, please visit https://www.filmconcertoforyazidis.com/the-film.

This event is co-sponsored by the Canadian Coalition Against Terror and Beth Avraham Yoseph Synagogue.

A tax receipt for a portion of the ticket will be issued on the night of the event.
