My Name is Sara - Film Discussion
After the Nazis murder her family, 12-year-old Sara Goralnik flees to the Ukrainian countryside and assumes the identity of her Christian best friend. She lives by her wits as a farmhouse maid, where one slip of her tongue could mean her life. The award-winning film "My Name Is Sara," tells the true story of her bravery, strength and survival. Watch it on demand from Thursday, July 15 - Sunday, July 18 at holocaustcenter.org. Then join us on July 18 for a discussion with Sara’s son and Executive Producer Mickey Shapiro, Director Steven Oritt and Detroit Free Press columnist Nancy Kaffer.
