Film Screening: Big Sonia

August 11 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$10

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski – great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor – runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than thirty years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, Big Sonia also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.

This screening is presented in conjunction with the Holocaust Memorial Museum San Antonio.

Tickets $10 each. The screening will be followed with a talk-back featuring Holocaust survivor, Susan Weisz Jalnos. All patrons are invited and encouraged to attend. Following the talk-back, the Memorial will be open for patrons to tour for one hour.
