The Flight Portfolio
Center for Jewish History
New York, NY
Share this event:


In 1940, Varian Fry, a Harvard-educated American journalist, traveled to occupied France carrying a little money and a short list of imperiled artists and writers, many of whom were Jewish. Determined to save prominent refugees and their work, Fry spent 13 months procuring false documents, amassing emergency funds, and setting up escape routes for luminaries like Hannah Arendt,  Max Ernst, and Marc Chagall. Inspired by Fry's extraordinary story, bestselling author Julie Orringer (The Invisible Bridge) weaves together fact and fiction in her suspenseful new novel, The Flight Portfolio, and poses a difficult and enduring question: how do we weigh human lives? Orringer speaks with Jewish Week's Sandee Brawarsky and Jonathan Wiesner of the International Rescue Committee

Presented by Center for Jewish History & The Jewish Week
