12 Cuba’s Forgotten Jewels, A Haven in Havana Film provided by The National Center for Jewish Film, www.jewishfilm.org In 1941, it was almost impossible to escape the horrors of Hitler’s regime. This was the year when fourteen year-old Marion Finkels joined the thousands of Jewish refugees desperate to flee Nazi- Occupied Europe. With her family, she escaped by ship across the Atlantic Ocean to one of the few countries open to them: Cuba. Filmmakers Judy Kreith and Robin Truesdale merge interviews, photos, passages from a memoir, and a teen’s diary to illustrate this story of perseverance. It reveals a fusion of cultures and customs with rhythm and fluidity as the refugees navigate their new lives influenced by the lifestyle and motion of Cuba. Enrollment is limited.
