The Kyiv and Warsaw Committees of Chicago Sister Cities International proudly present the Chicago Premiere of Three Stories of Galicia, a documentary that reveals the intimate stories of three courageous individuals who took it upon themselves to preserve the dignity of the human spirit. A Jewish man whose family chose to save the life of its worst enemy. A Ukrainian woman who endured the theft of her children to save her country. A Polish priest who risked everything to end the sectarian hatred that tore at his parish. They all came from a land where the Second World War never ended and where children grow up with the burden of fighting the battles of their grandparents. The land was called Galicia.
