Screening Location: Polish Premiere at Jewish Historical Institute
Oct 18, 2010

Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw, Poland. On the night of the Warsaw premiere of “Prisoner of Her Past,” prominent Israeli author Amos Oz also is speaking in town, as are several other noted personalities. Nonetheless, the film draws an overflow crowd, with extra room and seating required. Many children of Holocaust survivors attend this event, and they express a range of opinion on the film: Some embrace it, others feel the subject is inappropriate for a documentary.
