ARTISAN CENTER Theater presents SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS

At Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina, it is a Wednesday night, December 24, 1941, eighteen days after Pearl Harbor and FDR’s declaration of war. Though the war has been gaining momentum in the US for several years, the direct involvement in battle at Christmastime has brought family members from far and wide for what might be their last holiday together. The Sanders Family first performed at Mount Pleasant Baptist in June of 1938, after a five-year hiatus from the Gospel Circuit. Since then, they have returned to Mount Pleasant each year at Homecoming. This is their last performance before the war forces the group to disband. If you loved SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN you will love this holiday-themed sequel. The Sanders Family is back with their own special way of celebrating. SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS is packed with lots of Christmas carols and Gospel songs that will send you on your way singing through the rest of the holidays.

Dallas Holocaust Museum presents A History of the Kindertransport: How 10,000 Children Were Rescued

The Kindertransport was a rescue operation that granted safe passage to 10,000 Jewish children caught in the path of Nazi Germany. In most cases, they left parents and siblings behind. The Kindertransport required steadfast determination, expediency, and the balancing acts of numerous individuals and organizations. Examine all the details that had to be nailed down; the numerous transportation schedules to synchronize; the sacrifices of parents to save their children and the selflessness of the people who provided homes for the children. Meet the Upstanders who made what seemed impossible happen at great risk to themselves; meet the parents who were forced to make heart-wrenching decisions; and finally, meet the children who escaped Hitler.
