Jewish Film Series Presents Woman In Gold

In English with Subtitles

Sixty years after fleeing Vienna, Maria Altmann, an elderly Jewish woman, attempts to reclaim family possessions that were seized by the Nazis. Among them is a famous portrait of Maria's beloved Aunt Adele: Gustave Klimt's "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I." With the help of young lawyer Randy Schoeberg, Maria embarks upon a lengthy legal battle to recover this painting and several others, but it will not be easy, for Austria considers them national treasures.

In English with English subtitles.

Following the film, we'll join in a discussion led by Beth Am member Michael Asimow, Visiting Professor at Stanford Law School. This film is free and refreshments will be served.
