The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance is co-sponsoring the Dallas premiere of the film Rafting to Bombay on September 12 at the Zale Auditorium of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Dallas. Tickets are $10 each for the film, which will be shown at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
In November, 2008, Israeli Director Erez Laufer and his father, Nahum, travelled to Mumbai, India, where Nahum spent his childhood after his family fled the Nazis during the War. By cruel coincidence, they found themselves in the midst of a terrorist attack, in which the Chabad House was tragically one of the main targets. Past and present collide as the family history is recounted, and a little-known and fascinating story emerges of the Jewish refugees who found a safe haven in Mumbai during WWII.
The film is a featured selection of the 14th annual Jewish Film Festival. Tickets are available online by clicking here:
