Discussion: The Albanian Code
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
The Albanian Code from award-winning Israeli filmmaker Yael Katzir tells the little-known story of how thousands of Jewish refugees in Albania were rescued in World War II. Ennie Altaraz, who was saved there having escaped from Yugoslavia, decides to return to say thank you. This voyage is full of surprises, discovering how a nation bound by its moral code saved refugees and recognizing Albania’s unique wartime role in rescuing the persecuted.
