Varian Fry, The Artists' Schindler

Varian Fry ran a high-risk, illegal program of escapes, channeling vulnerable artists, writers, scientists, political activists and academics out of France to the relative safety of Portugal, North Africa and the U.S. He went into Jewish occupied land. He laundered U.S money to fund his activities and give safe passage to some of the most famous cultural figures of our age. (General Audience). Color. (50 min)
