The museum will host a screening of the documentary film, above the Drowning Sea, followed by a discussion



The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is partnering with the SDSU Chinese Cultural Center to bring twice-monthly remote educational programming to our community via this series of talks and discussions.  This series offers unique insights into Chinese history, Chinese culture, American history and lifeways of Chinese Americans, with a particular focus on objects represented in the Museum’s permanent collection

On February 20th we will host an online screening of the film, Above the Drowning Sea.  This documentary recounts the stories of Jewish people who were able to escape Nazi-controlled Vienna in the mid-20th century and find refuge in Shanghai, thanks to a diplomat.  The screening will be followed by commentary from Rabbi Greenberg and others. 


We will publish a link to the page where attendees should register to attend the presentation in Zoom in early February!
