NFPOC LAUNCHES FILM SERIES ABOUT WAR




North Fork People of Conscience is pleased to announce the first film in our series dealing with issues of war.

SISTERS IN RESISTANCE, a documentary about four French women who put their lives on the line to fight the Nazi occupation of France which led to their arrest by the Gestapo and and deportation to the Ravensbruck concentration camp.

The film shows them as they are today, still activists, still bound by an enduring friendship. More information about the film and Maia Wechesler, the film maker, can be found at http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/sistersinresistance/film.html

The film will be screened in the Peconic Landing auditorium in Greenport on Friday, August 25 at 8 pm, and will be followed by an open discussion.

Admission is free.

We hope you and your friends can join us to watch this compelling story of courage, conviction and commitment.

For more information, please contact Gwynne Schroeder at 631 298 4912 or email us at nfpofc@optonline.com

If you live on the North Fork, we hope you will be seeing our poster all around town.
