Premiere Event

In the November/December Penn Stater, writer Vicki Glembocki ’93, ’02g told the story behind the new film No. 4 Street of Our Lady—how a crusty Polish Catholic named Francisca Halamajowa helped 15 of her Jewish neighbors survive even as the Nazis were systematically murdering the other 6,000 Jews in her town. Penn State filmmakers Barbara Bird, Judy Maltz, and Richie Sherman traveled with some of the survivors (including Maltz’s father) back to the town where the story had played out 60 years before, and the resulting film promises to be powerful.

The film will debut at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, at the State Theatre in State College. Tickets are free, but the theatre (814-272-0606) recommends getting tickets in advance since demand has been high. For more about the film, check out the filmmakers’ Web site.
