Sunday Afternoon At the Movies!

February 14, 2016 Randolph

BESA: The Promise is a true story of two men. One is Norman Gershman, a Jewish-
American photographer, documenting first-person accounts of the Albanian Muslims who
rescued Jews during the Holocaust. The other is Rexhep Hoxha, a Muslim-Albanian, who
“must fulfill the promise made to a Jewish family his father rescued during the Holocaust,
and return to them a set of Hebrew books they left behind. Rexhep’s promise is more than
words — it’s part of his besa — an honor code that, among other things, pledges all
Albanians to offer safe harbor to refugees.
In BESA, we discover a nation of everyday heroes far removed from the narrative of
violent Islam and anti-Semitism that’s so often portrayed in media today. And hear stories
of gratitude to Muslim rescuers that have gone unheard for almost seventy years.”
BESA: The Promise was underwritten by a generous grant from the National Endowment
for the Humanities. Admission is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be
served. Please plan to join us. For more information, please call 781-963-0440. Temple
