“Big Sonia” Screening and Filmmaker Q&A

October 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

One of the last remaining Holocaust survivors living in Kansas City, Sonia Warshawski is a bridge between cultures and generations. Fondly nicknamed “Big Sonia” for her diminutive stature and larger-than-life personality, Warshawski has served as an inspirational public speaker at schools and prisons while running the tailor shop she’s owned for over 30 years. Join the institute for a screening of the documentary “Big Sonia,” which offers a portrait of the power of love and hope over bigotry. A Q&A will follow the screening with filmmaker Leah Warshawski, Sonia’s granddaughter.

This program is free and open to the public.
