Lies and Miracles: Childhood in a Siberian Labor Camp

Film discussion and Q&A featuring congregant George Landau

Tiburon resident and a member of Congregation Emanu-El, George Landau and his family spent several years as prisoners in the Soviet Union, first in a Siberian labor camp and later in Uzbekistan during World War II. In Lies and Miracles, a 40-minute documentary, Montara filmmaker, Nancy Margulies, interviews George, as well as family friend and fellow survivor Irenka Taurek, and uses archival footage and original art to tell the story of their profoundly life-altering experiences during a dark historic era. "It's a film about survival and finding miracles around very challenging times," explains Margulies, who is George's cousin. 

Please watch the 40-minute film before joining the discussion with George and Nancy. Advanced registration required. Both the film link and the Zoom discussion link will be emailed to you once you have registered.
