No Asylum (Film Screening) and Q&A (Eva Schloss and John Wood)
December 13 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Rex Doyle Studio Theatre
We are honoured to welcome Eva Schloss, Anne Frank’s stepsister to GSA. Eva Schloss is a Holocaust survivor… a wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, friend… a teacher and a humanitarian.
We present a screening of the film No Asylum which follows Anne’s only surviving family members as they relate the emotional story of her family’s frantic search for sanctuary. Eva Schloss recounts the Franks’ riveting personal stories and divulges insights into Otto’s attempts to emigrate and save the family. Then Otto found Anne’s diary, a window into the soul of a trapped young girl whose eloquent writings offer hope for a future without prejudice. Eva witnessed him dedicating the remainder of his life to spreading Anne’s message of tolerance and respect.
