The Center for Changing Lives

The Twin Cities premiere of “Prisoner of Her Past” plays an unconventional setting: The Center for Changing Lives, a venture of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota that provides job training, counseling, financial services, after-school activities, health care screenings and the like. This is precisely the kind of help that Sonia Reich, and other Holocaust survivors, could have used after emigrating from Europe to the United States. A wide demographic attends this screening, with post-film discussion moderated by Minnesota Public Radio’s Euan Kerr, in conversation with Randi Markusen of World Without Genocide, Dr. Brian Engdahl from the VA Medical Center, Nancy Beers from Lutheran Social Services and director Gordon Quinn with Howard Reich.
