The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) invites the community to attend a virtual program Victory Day: Featuring Stanlee Stahl and Pastor Chris Edmonds to be live-streamed through Zoom on Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 6:30 p.m.. This program will be streamed as an interactive webinar and it is free for the public to attend virtually. To attend, you must register online at https://bit.ly/2xjxlkh by Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.
 
The program will begin with an introduction from The FHM’s Executive Director Elizabeth Gelman, followed by an interactive session with Stanlee Stahl and Pastor Chris Edmonds. We also will be playing a shortened version of the award-winning documentary Following the Footsteps of My Father which is available on The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous (JFR) website here: https://jfr.org/video-library/reunion-2016.
 
The community may write in questions within the webinar chat and Stanlee Stahl, Pastor Edmonds, and Elizabeth Gelman will be readily available throughout the program to virtually answer your questions and interact with you in real time.
 
Following the Footsteps of My Father uncovers an act of extraordinary courage by Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds, a devout Christian from Tennessee who risked his own life to save the lives of 200 Jewish G.I.s when they were prisoners of the Germans during WWII. This act of bravery would have been forgotten and lost to history, had it not been for the rediscovery of Edmonds’ private diary by his son, Chris Edmonds, and a chance encounter with one of the surviving Jewish American P.O.W.s.
 
Pastor Chris Edmonds sets out to follow the footsteps of his father, discovering the truth about the brutality inflicted on captured Jewish American G.I.s, and searching for the men his father had saved. Roddie Edmonds passed away before knowing the enormous impact of his bravery, and before knowing he would be the only American soldier ever recognized by Yad Vashem as Righteous Among the Nations. Master Sgt. Edmonds never spoke of his heroism to anyone. Now, through his own words, written in his own hand, his voice can be heard.
 
Victory Day: Featuring Stanlee Stahl and Pastor Chris Edmonds is free to the public to attend virtually. To register online, please visit https://bit.ly/2xjxlkh by Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.
