Interfaith Honour in a Time of Hatred
Tuesday 16 January, 20:00
Please join us for an interfaith open evening:
Matt Caro of Yad Vashem will present “Besa: A Code of Honour,”
our visiting exhibition which is on display 11-17 January 2018.
Albania, the only European country with a Muslim majority, succeeded in the place where other European nations failed: almost all Jews living within Albanian borders during the German occupation were saved.
Besa literally means “to keep the promise”; its significance was that once a family was hosted by Albanians, they could trust them with their lives.
Discover the story with this photo-exhibition, a collaboration between Yad Vashem and the Joseph Interfaith Foundation, made possible by the support of The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation.
Rabbi Smith will also give a short account of the Council of Imams and Rabbis trip to Srebrenica.
The evening will include an opportunity to have a brief conducted tour of the EHRS sanctuary.
