Baruch Performing Arts Center Presents The World Premiere Of REFUGE
Did you know there was an entire country in Europe that helped to save thousands of Jews during World War II? Can you conceive that this tiny country in the Balkans, this Muslim country, actually contained more Jews by the end of the war than at the beginning? This is the true, little known story .

Refuge is at the Baruch Performing Arts Center through May 11
