Film Screening: "Three Stories of Galicia"
Come see this inspiring film about heroism, moral character, and reconciliation among three ethnic and religious groups (Jews, Ukrainians and Poles) that used to live on the territory known as Galicia in southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The film focuses on three individuals who had the courage to reach out to the other side and overcome barriers of prejudice and hatred during the most difficult circumstances: at the time of war, oppression and ethnic conflict.
Sixty years after the Second World War, the conflict still goes on in Galicia. It remains in the hearts of the people, in the painful memories that never receded and in the hurtful stories passed on from one generation to the next. Under the Soviet regime that dominated the region until the beginning of the 1990s, the past was never exposed or examined, so the wounds have never healed.
