Route



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.

Co-sponsored with the Holocaust Speakers Bureau.
