On Sunday, May 29th at 4 pm we would like to invite you to a screening of the film “A Town Called Brzostek”.
The screening will be followed by a discussion (in English) with the director, Simon Target and Prof. Jonathan Webber, led by Dr. Edyta Gawron.
In documentary A Town Called Brzostek , Simon Target presents the story of Professor Jonathan Webber, who returns to the place of the burial of his grandfather. Upon his arrival in this little town in Subcarpathia, he learns that a vacant plot of land is the only remnant of the former Jewish cemetery. With the help of the mayor, priest, and local community, the main protagonist restores the burial site and brings about its re-consecration. Strangely enough, although there are only 50 seats prepared, 600 people, i.e. almost all the members of the local community, show up at the ceremony…
In Polish and English.
