Rachael Cerrotti: We Share the Same Sky
$0-$20 Sliding Scale
In 2009, Rachael Cerrotti turned to her grandmother Hana and asked: Will you tell me your story? What happened next launched Rachael’s decade-long quest to retrace how her grandmother remained one step ahead of the Nazis at every turn and survived the Holocaust thanks to the kindness of strangers.
More than a decade later, and in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, award-winning storyteller and photographer Rachael Cerrotti joins us live via Zoom from her home in Maine to share her grandmother’s story using photographs, video, testimony, and clips from her critically-acclaimed podcast We Share the Same Sky. This incredible journey will take you through Central Europe, Scandinavia, and the United States invoking memories of love, loss, and a woman’s strength to move forward in the face of uncertainty.
“Rachael Cerrotti’s We Share The Same Sky proves the Talmudic adage that to ‘save a life, is to save the world entire.’ It is a testament that the best stories are true stories and that not only is the personal political, but that history is personal.” —Roberta Grossman, Documentary Filmmaker
