Screening and Discussion of the film No.4 Street of Our Lady
This documentary film tells the remarkable story of Francisca Halamajowa, a Polish-Catholic woman who rescued 16 of her Jewish neighbors during the Holocaust, while cleverly passing herself off as a Nazi sympathizer. The screening will be followed by a Q & A session with Fran (Fay) Malkin, who is featured in the documentary and who was one of the hidden children saved by Francisca Halamajowa. This event, which is free and open to the public, can also deepen the understanding of those who plan to attend the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s production of The Diary of Anne Frank.
