On Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 7:00 pm, the Beth El Synagogue of East Windsor Werner Lecture Fund will be presenting the Emmy nominated documentary, 50 Children. In the spring of 1939, a Jewish lawyer and his wife left their comfortable home and two children in Philadelphia and embarked on a bold and improbable plan to rescue fifty children from Nazi-controlled Vienna. Gil and Eleanor Kraus bravely traveled into the heart of the Nazi empire in an effort to save innocent lives. Their unlikely mission would turn an ordinary American couple into extraordinary heroes. Learn the story of these remarkable people and meet Paul Beller, one of the 50 Children.
Admission is free.
Beth El Synagogue is located at 50 Maple Stream Road, East Windsor, NJ; 609-443-4454; www.bethel.net.
