Ocotber 21, 2014 - Complicit: The St. Louis Story. Film and Discussion with Complicit Directors Ruth Kalish and Robert Karakow will follow the screening. Complicit examines the odyssey of the SS St. Louis, which set sail from Germany in 1939 with hundreds of Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazis.  Complicit explores the refusal of Cuba, U.S. and Canada to grant safe haven to the Jewish refugees on board the SS St. Louis.  This act became a symbol of the world’s indifference.  This film’s timeless message demonstrates that wherever anti-Semitism has gone unchecked, the persecution of others has been present or not far behind.
