“Complicit” blends drama, survivor interviews, and actual footage to tell the story of the doomed MS St. Louis ship, which left Germany in an attempt to escape Nazi persecution and gain entry into the United States through Cuba. After weeks at sea pleading with the U.S., Canadian, and Cuban governments, the MS. St. Louis had no choice but to return to Europe, where it is estimated that over one quarter of her passengers perished in German concentration camps.

Please join us virtually on February 4th at 6:30 p.m. The FHM is hosting a free, virtual program, streaming on our FB Live, featuring “Complicit” creator and producer, Robert Krakow, Esquire, and surviving refugee passenger from the MS. St. Louis, Eva Wiener. Following the presentation, engage with Mr. Krakow and Ms. Eva Wiener during a live Q&A.
