New England Premiere Presentation of a Documentary Film Directed by Yale Strom A Letter to Wedgwood: The Life of Gabriella Hartstein Auspitz
Post Film Discussion with Gabriella Hartstein Auspitz
Gabriella Hartstein was the child selected in 1922 Czechoslovakia to greet British Colonel (later Lord) Josiah Wedgwood who discussed Christian Zionist support for a Jewish State. In 1938, following the invasion of Czechoslovakia by German-backed Hungarian fascists, Gabriella appealed successfully to Wedgwood for help. The film describes the Central European milieu in which Gabriella grew into adulthood.
