Yom HaShoah Conversation with “Big Sonia” Director Leah Warshawski

In anticipation of Yom HaShoah, filmmaker Leah Warshawski will discuss her crowd-pleasing portrait of her grandmother, who is still sharing her remarkable story at 94, on Monday, April 20 at 4:00 pm. Kathryn Bernheimer will moderate the Zoom conversation.
