NYU Steinhardt will host a screening of the award-winning documentary film, Turkish Passport, on Monday, March 26 at the NYU Kimmel Center for University Life.
Turkish Passport tells the story of diplomats posted to Turkish embassies and consulates in several European countries, who saved numerous Jewish people during the Holocaust. The film had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011.
Opening remarks will be made by Mary Brabeck, dean of NYU Steinhardt; producer Gunes Celikcan; Enver Yucel, chairman of the Board of Trustees of Bahcesehir University and NYU Steinhardt Dean’s Council member; and Ertugrul Apakan, ambassador and permanent representative of Turkey to the United Nations. A delegation from Turkey will travel to the city to attend the screening.
NYU Steinhardt has organized the New York premiere of Turkish Passport in collaboration with Bahcesehir University of Istanbul, a partner in the film’s production.
