On Tuesday, September 13, at 6:30 p.m. the Verona Public will screen “Baba Babee Skazala,”
a documentary about Ukraine created and directed by Matej B. Silecky, who grew up in Verona.

“Baba Babee Skazala,” which translates as “Grandmother Told Grandmother,” tells the little-known story of Ukrainian children torn from their homes in the crush between the Nazi and Soviet fronts in World War II. Spending their childhood as refugees in Europe, these inspiring individuals later immigrated to the United States, creating new homes and communities through their grit, faith and deep belief in the importance of preserving culture.

“Baba Babee Skazala” was Silecky’s first film, created from more than 35 oral history interviews with the survivors. It had its world premiere at the Fall 2018 New Jersey Film Festival. There will be discussion with the director after the Library screening.
