On-Site Film & Discussion: “Adam & Ida – Almost A Fairytale”

December 4, 2022 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Orphaned and torn apart at the age of 3, twins Adam and Ida Paluch survived the Holocaust without knowing what had happened to each other. Adam endured life in a concentration camp and was later adopted. Ida evaded capture as a hidden child in Nazi-occupied-Poland. Both children were baptized, issued fake birth certificates with new names, and raised Catholic, but never forgot each other.

Join us for the Midwest premiere of “Adam & Ida,” a remarkable film detailing two Survivors’ lifelong quest for belonging – a story told through interviews and stunning animations illustrating the lives and memories. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with star and Museum Board Member Ida Kersz.
