March 2022 Film Series

In the 2014 film, Walking with the Enemy, a young man disguises himself as a Nazi officer in wartime Hungary to find and save his fellow Hungarian Jews in Budapest. This film is based on a true story. Holocaust rescuer, and former St. Louis resident, Carl Lutz, is a key supporting character.

Amy Lutz, the Museum’s Manager of Communications and Social Media, will lead the discussion. Amy is a historian and expert on Carl Lutz and the diplomatic rescue efforts that took place in Budapest, Hungary during the Holocaust. She holds a bachelor’s degree in History from Saint Louis University and a master’s degree in History from the University of Missouri, St. Louis. She is currently working on a book manuscript based upon her graduate thesis, Amelia Earhart: Myth and Memory.

This will be a hybrid event. Participants can join the discussion in-person at the Jewish Federation of St. Louis building, or online via a Zoom webinar. Walking with the Enemy will be streamed live during the program and will be followed by a short presentation and discussion.
