SUNDAY, MAY 24TH AT 7 PM CST/8 PM EST
VIRTUAL SCREENING of Nobody Wants Us hosted by Steppin Out Adventures. Followed by discussion with the filmmaker Laura Seltzer-Duny and Holocaust Survivor featured in the film Annette Lachmann.
The story of three teenagers and their families hoping to make it safely onto American soil while trying to escape the Nazi invasion of Europe.
In 1940, a ship called the S.S. Quanza left the port of Lisbon carrying several hundred Jewish refugees with the hopes of finding freedom. Most of them held life-saving visas. But events went terribly wrong, and the passengers became trapped on the ship because no country would take them in. What happened to the passengers? The film reinforces the concept of helping those in need when the world seems against them.

- 7:00 PM CST/8:00 PM EST: We meet virtually to say hello via a Zoom link sent to the attendees.
