Based on recently discovered letters written by Anne Frank’s father Otto, No Asylum features Anne’s only surviving family members, Buddy Elias and Eva Geiringer-Schloss, discussing the Frank family’s last efforts to seek refuge in America before going into hiding in 1942.

Joan Adler, executive director of the Straus Historical Society, is the author of For the Sake of the Children: The Letters Between Otto Frank and Nathan Straus Jr. In 2007, a file of letters between University of Heidelberg roommates and lifelong friends, Otto Frank and Nathan Straus Jr, was found in the archives of YIVO: Institute for Jewish Research in NYC. These letters, which are also part of No Asylum, reveal for the first time that Otto Frank tried desperately to get his family out of war torn Holland in 1941, fifteen months before they went into hiding. The letters are being published for the first time in For the Sake of the Children.

There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend. To RSVP contact Deborah Lom at (516) 571-8040 or dlom@hmtcli.org.

Reel Upstanders was established in honor of David Taub (1932-2010), a Holocaust Survivor and respected friend of HMTC.
