The Story of Safe Haven

Event Type: Adult Programs
Date: 1/16/2014
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 The maelstrom that was World War II created millions of fugitives, fleeing for their lives from the horrors of war.

Their journeys took them from many countries across Europe to comparative safety behind Allied lines.

A continent away, Oswego, New York, on the shores of Lake Ontario, was destined to play a unique part in World War II and in refugee history.

Judy Coe Rapport will tell the story of Safe Haven - how a President's decision altered the lives of 982 refugees and the small community that gave them shelter and hope.
