Sunday November 8 – 4:00 and 7:30 pm
(Germany, 2010, Marcus O. Rosenmüller director, 96 minutes)
Guest Speaker: Author Bernice Eisenstein
The moving story of three musical prodigies - two Jewish and one German - set in 1941, during the Nazi invasion of Poltava/Ukraine. In a war-torn, grown-up world gone mad, the three children provide the light of music and, ultimately, salvation. Sensitive and beautifully made, Wunderkinder will stir your heart.
A co-presentation with Holocaust Education Week, Goethe Institut Toronto and The Royal Conservatory of Music
