When the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia in 1939, Max and Irma Czerner decided to flee Prague. Max offered a Nazi officer their luxury apartment in exchange for five exit visas, for the two parents and their three small children. On the day of the exchange the Nazi showed up—with three visas. Fifty years later in their Chicago apartment, hidden behind a piano, their family found a hidden box of letters.
“Letters from Prague” tells, as it is happening and in their own words, the harrowing drama of one family’s escape from the Holocaust, which culminates two generations later at the U.S. Embassy in the Czech Republic.
“Letters From Prague” is generously supported by funds from the CJP Arts & Culture Initiative and by Facing History & Ourselves. It is supported by the Jewish Arts Collaborative and Gann Academy.+ More... - Less...
