On-Site Film & Discussion: “Adam & Ida – Almost a Fairy Tale”

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.

Film screening and Q&A with star and Museum Board Member Ida Kersz.
