6:30 PM Film: An Open Door: Holocaust Haven in the Philippines Philippine filmmaker Noel "Sonny" Izon, along with associate producer and Holocaust scholar Bonnie M. Harris have collaborated in creating a historical documentary. This previously unknown episode in Philippine history details the rescue of destitute refugees fleeing the Third Reich in the late 1930s before the outbreak of WWII. When nations of the world were closing their doors to refugee Jews fleeing the growing horrors of Nazi Germany, the Philippines chose to do what others would not — save Jewish lives.

6:30 PM La Rumorosa Rock Art Along The Border Join photographer and author Don Liponi for a discussion of the book "La Rumorosa Rock Art Along the Border," a survey of Kumeyaay and related artwork in Southern California, Colorado River Corridor, Western Arizona and Baja California.

It's the first publication to focus on the indigenous rock art of this region. This book is testament to the historical permanence of Kumeyaay culture, and how art creation can help oppressed societies to survive cultural genocide committed against them.

Almost none of the sites and photographs have ever been published.
