Displeyst tells the true story of a well-to-do Jewish family, headed by matriarch Margaret Welish. Fleeing Nazi persecution, Margaret took her family from Austria to the Philippines, only to have their life ripped apart again by the invasion of Japan.
Using Margaret's 1981 diary and oral histories from her daughters, Infinite Variety Productions has created a script showing that power and corruption can break apart an entire community, but love, family, and tradition can build a home anywhere. Echoing present-day issues and themes, join IVP as we investigate how and why history seems stuck on repeat.
Join IVP as they narrate the political tension that brought the Nazi party to Austria, the struggles and joys of starting a new life in a strange place, and the horror of being displaced yet again.
