While Christian rescuers in WWIl are virtually unknown, even less recognized and celebrated are the extraordinary Muslim resisters and rescuers that saved thousands of Jews and other persecuted people. Learn about an aspect of Islam called “Sufism” and the cultural/religious concept of Besa and how these influenced diplomats and many others to save Jews at the risk of their own lives. This inspiring AV program enables us to understand and celebrate the beauty of Muslim goodness during the Holocaust.
