A talkback with the filmmakers will take place at 7:30pm on January 17, on the Virtual J.
About Wallenberg Day: Raoul Wallenberg Day was designated by the Government of Canada in 2001 to commemorate Wallenberg, Canada’s first honorary citizen, who is credited with saving the lives of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews. The Neuberger presents an annual commemorative and educational program to mark this day.
