Film Screening: Three Stories of Galicia

Friday, October 26, 2012

Please join the Harriman Institute for a screening of 'Three Stories of Galicia,' followed by a panel discussion with Olha Onyshko, Sarah Farhat, and Tarik Amar.

A Jewish man whose family chose to save the life of its worst enemy. A Ukrainian woman who endured the theft of her children to save her country. A Polish priest who risked everything to end the sectarian hatred that tore at his parish. They all came from a land where the Second World War never ended and where children grow up with the burden of fighting the battles of their grandparents. The land was called Galicia.

In the epic settings of the events that changed the course of modern history, THREE STORIES OF GALICIA reveals the intimate stories of three courageous individuals who took it upon themselves to preserve the dignity of the human spirit.
