The Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival, Bureau of Jewish Education, Phoenix Holocaust Survivors’ Association and Generations After will jointly sponsor screening of the documentary “50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. & Mrs. Kraus” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8, at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus in Scottsdale.

The 2013 documentary follows the rescue of 50 Jewish children from Nazi Germany shortly before World War II by an American Jewish couple who traveled there in the spring of 1939. Gilbert Kraus, a Philadelphia lawyer, and his wife, Eleanor, were ordinary people who stayed virtually unknown, according to Claus Mueller, a sociology professor at Hunter College and a board member with the nonprofit New York Film and Video Council and the International Film and Television Exchange.
