From Slavery to Freedom

October 28, 2019-7:30 pm

From Slavery to Freedom
Film Screening followed by
Conversation with Doreen Gainsford
7.30pm Monday 28 October

From Slavery To Freedom portrays the story of Soviet Refuseniks  through the prism of Natan Sharansky‘s biography. In 1977 Sharansky, a famous human rights activist, was arrested on charges of spying for the USA, treason and anti-Soviet agitation. No single person symbolizes the era more than Natan Sharansky, who defied the entire Soviet system in his fight for freedom and national identification. After spending years in prison, he ultimately won the struggle, paving the way for all of Soviet Jewry.

This film was first shown in May this year at the Washington Jewish Film Festival. 

After our screening we will be joined by Doreen Gainsford who led the 35’s Women’s Campaign for Soviet Jewry.

The film is in Russian and Hebrew with English subtitles.
