Finding Leah Tickotsky: A Discovery of Heritage in Poland tells of Stanford University student and filmmaker Sarah Golabek-Goldman’s excursion to Poland to teach English in the village of Zakliczyn. While there, she also visited the towns where her family lived before World War II to search for Poles who remembered her relatives. In the village of Jasionowka, Golabek-Goldman discovered the gravestone of her great-great-grandmother Leah Tickotsky.
Golabek-Goldman’s film explores Polish-Jewish relations as well as her personal journey to discover her family roots. Through Golabek-Goldman’s eyes, “Finding Leah Tickotsky” provides a perspective on pre-World War II history and serves as a reminder of the extraordinary contributions Jews made to Poland over nine centuries.
Followed by a short Q&A with Mona Golabek.
Located in the Sheffer Studio in the Lucille Lortel White Barn
Presented in partnership with The Westport Library
