Our documentary in progress tells two very personal, parallel stories of families resettling in the United States. We are a nation of immigrants where the most recent refugees are not always welcomed. The United State’s response to Syrian Refugees is eerily similar to the way Holocaust refugees were met over 70 years ago. Refugees seeking asylum during World War II, led to the development of organizations and strategies that are now assisting this new wave of refugees.
Our goal is to create a better understanding of the plight of refugees and empower individuals and communities with the tools to help solve the refugee crisis — one family at a time.
