Film viewing of:
Finding Leah Tickotsky
A discovery of heritage in Poland
In 2007, Stanford University student, Sarah Golabek-Goldman, traveled to Poland to teach English in a small Polish village. While there, she also visited the towns where her family lived before World War II to search for Poles who remembered her relatives. She discovered the gravestone of her great-great grandmother, Leah Tickotsky,
This movie explores Polish-Jewish relations as well as Sarah’s personal journey to discover her ancestral roots. Join us in viewing this poignant illustration of how much these two groups have to say to one another in an attempt to heal old hatreds.
After the film we will have a questions and answer period followed by personal accounts of members who have traveled to the “old country” in search of their family roots.
