Wilton Reads: Wilton Clergy/Wi-ACT/WLA Interfaith Lecture–Dr. Fariborz Mokhtari

March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

This is an Wilton Interfaith Clergy-sponsored presentation by Dr. Fariborz Mokhtari, author of In The Lion’s Shadow:  The Iranian Schindler And His Homeland In The Second World War. Mokhtari will tell us about the efforts of an Iranian diplomat stationed in Paris who was instrumental in protecting numerous Jews from the Holocaust–truly an example of mutual respect, tolerance, and assistance among religious groups in the face of a shared danger.

This program was specially selected to complement this year’s Wilton Reads program. There is no charge to attend but donations are always welcome. Registration strongly suggested. Register online or call 203.762.6334.
