Event description for My Italian Secret

Please join us for a special film screening of My Italian SecretMy Italian Secret tells the story of sports idol Gino Bartali and other courageous Italians who rescued Jews, partisans, and refugees from Nazi-occupied Italy. Gino Bartali is a sports legend; but his most daring triumph came when he risked his life over and over to save Jews threatened by Nazi extermination. Bartali, like most of the rescuers, never sought recognition or reward. Few ever knew his name or what role he played in their rescue.

There will be a question and answer session with the producers after the film, and refreshments will be served.
