The Franklin County High School History Club is sponsoring a viewing of documentary film “Big Sonia” in the high school auditorium Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. The film features the story of Holocaust survivor Sonia Warshawski. In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, the 91-year-old great-grandmother, businesswoman and Holocaust survivor runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than 30 years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Warshawski to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A story of generational trauma and healing, “Big Sonia” also offers a laugh-out-loud, funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry and the power of truth-telling to heal everyone.
