Film Screening: Prisoner of Her Past
Solomon Victory Theater

5:00 pm – 6:00 pm reception, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm screening and Q&A

Howard Reich's mother Sonia fled the Nazis when she was a child. Years later, she began to suffer from late-onset Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and started to believe that someone was trying to kill her.

Prisoner of Her Past tracks Howard's journey across the United States and Eastern Europe to discover why his mother believes — to this day — that the world has conspired to try to execute her. But the film ventures beyond Sonia's story, to show what can be done to help traumatized children today. The film looks in particular at the victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, an area of special interest to Howard, who's the Chicago Tribune's jazz critic.

The Museum is proud to host this event with its
partners Temple Sinai and the New Orleans Holocaust Memorial
