A Forgotten Suitcase: The Mantello Rescue Mission

Har Tzeon-Agudath Achim, Silver Spring, MD

Dates: Sunday, January 11, 2015
Time: 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Speaker: Dr. Edna Friedberg

In 2005, a woman found a mysterious suitcase in her basement in Geneva, Switzerland.  Inside the suitcase were more than one thousand World War II-era certificates bearing the official seal of the Consulate of El Salvador.  Their history would reveal one of the largest scale, yet least known, rescue attempts of the Holocaust.
