Event Details

Spunky Holocaust survivor will keep telling her story until bullying and discrimination stop.
—Huffington Post

 

Standing at 4’8″ tall, Sonia Warshawski is a tiny woman with a huge personality. For years, she’s been a business owner and inspirational public speaker, sharing her stories of surviving the Holocaust with people afraid that their own traumas would define them. But when Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop, she's confronted with an agonizing decision about her own future.

 

Award-winning producer/co-director Leah Warshawski is Sonia’s granddaughter. She will introduce the film and lead a post-show discussion.

 

This program is part of Sunday Cinema, in which 5 fascinating films about Jewish lives are shown over 4 Sundays in January and February. See spertus.edu/film to find out more.
