Vienna's Lost Daughters Screening in New York City

MARCH 27, 2014 6:30

This 2007 Austrian documentary focuses on eight Vienna-born Holocaust survivors who came to New York by way of the "Kindertransporte". For many of these women, Vienna is still their emotional dwelling place, a city that holds both fond memories but also haunting images of the violent separation from their loved ones seventy years ago.

This screening is followed by a talk with the film's director Miriam Unger and some of its protagonists.
