A new educational paradigm that responds to both our multi-cultural society and our contemporary student’s need for higher levels of learning stimulants that seek to capture hyper-speed imaginations.
The SS St Louis Legacy Project uses education through drama to address this need.
We breathe life into the most compelling issues of society through live theater, docu-drama film and visual exhibitions. Our theatrical presentations (The Trial of Franklin D Roosevelt and The False Witness) have been performed throughout the US and have impacted learning perceptions and stimulated dialogue for thousands of students and communal audiences.
Our documentary film, COMPLICIT, is currently making its US and world tour. The film weaves the story of the SS St Louis into the political drama unfolding within the Roosevelt Administration regarding its policies on the Jewish refugee issues during the wartime period.
The film addresses the then and now issues of immigration, refugee policy and the civilized world’s response to genocide.
On September 24, 2012, our foundation brought 14 surviving St. Louis passengers to the US Department of State marking a watershed moment in American and Holocaust history. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns welcomed the passengers on behalf of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Our vision is clear – Our future is bright – Our dream is big: Education for the New Student in the New World
We offer you the opportunity to partner with us to make educational history at your university, high school and community organization.
