Oscar-nominated Polish director Agnieszka Holland’s (In Darkness; The Wire; House of Cards) breakthrough film was the independent hit of the year in 1991, and won the Golden Globe for best foreign film. It tells the astonishing true story of a Jewish teenager, Solomon Perel (on whose memoirs the film was based) who managed to escape the Holocaust through a remarkable chain of events. Separated from his family during the early days of the Second World War, he conceals his identity and is drafted into Hitler’s army.

This screening will include an introduction and discussion led by Dr Carmen Levick from The University of Sheffield.

Dr Carmen Levick is a Lecturer in Theatre at the University of Sheffield. Her main research interest is in strategies of memory and forgetting embodied in and performed by memorials, monuments, buildings, ruins.
