About

Hear anthropologist Dr Scarlett Epstein OBE in conversation with BBC reporter and writer Gabriel Partos about the little known story of the remarkable rescue of Jews in Albania during the Second World War. Albania, the only European country with a Muslim majority at the time, not only protected its Jewish citizens, but also provided sanctuary to Jewish refugees from across Europe. Remarkably, in 1945 Albania had more Jewish residents than it did before the war. Epstein, herself a refugee in Albania, would show her film Back from the Brink, followed by a discussion in the presence of the Albanian Ambassador to UK and Republic of Ireland, Mr Zef Mazi.
