My Italian Secret tells the story of sports idol Gino Bartali and other courageous Italians who carried out ingenious schemes to rescue 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.
Holocaust Survivors are invited to participate in candle lighting.
Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
Presented by the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre in partnership with the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre and the Consulate General of Italy.
Funded through our community’s generous contributions to Federation Annual Campaign, the Province of British Columbia and supported by the Vancouver Jewish Film Centre.
Audience members will receive Holocaust Survivor Memoirs generously donated by the Azrieli Foundation.
