American Friends of DVI hosts Screening of Documentary Film COMPLICIT to Benefit the DVI Clinic
The DVI clinic was founded by Holocaust survivor Trudi Birger in 1980 and is the only free dental clinic of its kind in Israel. For 35 years, the clinic has provided dental care to thousands of underprivileged children in Jerusalem with the help of volunteer dentists from around the world.
"The Trudi Birger Dental Clinic is a place where dentists from over 36 countries and of all religions come to care for the indigent children of Jerusalem regardless of religion, race or ethnicity," says AFDVI President Dr. Michael J. Goldberg. “This award-winning film contains rare archival footage and recounts the voyage of the SS St. Louis which set sail from Germany in 1939 seeking refuge from Nazi persecution but was denied safe haven in Cuba, the United States and Canada. It also honors those who perished in the Holocaust and celebrates the lives of survivors who have made such positive contributions to their adopted countries, as our own Trudi Birger made to her’s.”
