“A Wing and a Prayer” Discussion Panel

November 8 , 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sousa Mendes Foundation is presenting a virtual panel discussion with filmmaker Boaz Dvir about “A Wing and a Prayer,” the hour-long PBS documentary that tells the little-known story of World War II aviators who risked their lives and freedom in 1947-49 to prevent what they viewed as an imminent second Holocaust by fighting for Israel. Joining Dvir on the panel will be Penn State Middle Eastern Studies Prof. Eliyana Adler and one of the secret operation’s few remaining members, 98-year-old Harold Rothstein. The link to the film will be shared in advance with all those who register.
