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.
