Meet, eat and talk with Elizabeth Vrato before her presentation on how her grandfather, a holocaust hero, saved 600+ Jewish refugees from Nazi Deportation.

Hear the untold story of a top ranking military leader during WW2 when Albania was Facist and Nazi occupied, who saved over 600 Jewish refugees from Nazi deportation

Now, more than 70 years later, this story can finally be shared. It took until 2020, for Elizabeth Vrato to learn that her own grandfather, Kadri Cakrani, was a person who significantly changed the world with acts of bravery that place him among the most courageous and humanitarian figures in modern history.

Cakrani took the details of his efforts to his grave because of Iron Curtain politics. His story was first shared in the US in 2020 and is now traveling the globe.

Elizabeth Vrato is the grand-daughter of Commandant Kadri bey Cakrani who risked his live sheltering hundreds of Jewish people, in Berat, Albania while serving as the top military leader during WWII (when the country was both Fascist­ and Nazi occupied). Berat was the hub for Albania's protection of Jewish refugees, with a count of over 600 people saved from Nazi deportation.
