March 1968

Set against the backdrop of the volatile Communist era of 1960s Poland, this coming-of-age story pits romance against politics. Hania, a Jewish theatre student, falls in love with Janek, a student at the University of Technology. When her parents lose their respective jobs due to Wladyslaw Gomulka’s antisemitic purges, Hania opts to stay in Poland instead of emigrating with them. Politics soon catch up with the young lovers. At 4:30 p.m. local author Wade Hemsworth will interview Kalman Weiser, associate professor Silber Family Chair of Modern Jewish Studies, York University and Piotr Wrobel, Polish-Canadian historian and expert specializing in Polish history and Central and Eastern European history.
