A dark blot on French history happened in 1942 Paris when French officials captured over 10,000 Jews and sent them off to German concentration camps, including Auschwitz, where they were murdered. Sarah’s Key fluctuates between 1942, when 10-year old Sarah and her family are rounded up from their Paris apartment, where she has hidden her younger brother in a closet, and sent to the camps -- and 2009, when American journalist Julia is assigned to investigate the tragedy and stays in the same apartment, which now belongs to her father-in-law. In undertaking an obsessive quest to reveal Sarah’s story, she discovers that Sarah had escaped and returned to the Paris apartment to search, unsuccessfully, for her brother and eventually ended up in Brooklyn. Meanwhile, there are many plot turns along the way that underscore the immensity of the holocaust tragedy and the acting talent of the cast. Guests and non-members welcome.
THIS IS A MUST SEE! PLEASE RESERVE.
