Wearing my hat from the film in theaters across the nation later this Fall. Sonia is a 91 year-old Holocaust survivor who works with people all over the world. In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski – great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor – runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than 30 years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to resist her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, BIG SONIA also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.
Kerry and I had the opportunity of meeting Sonia Warshawski at the Napa Valley Film Festiva Saturday night. Sonia is featured in a documentary called 'Big Sonia' where she discusses her inspirational stories about surviving the Holocaust. It was an honor to meet her and also to present the directors (Leah Warshawski and Todd Soliday) with the award for Favorite Documentary Feature on stage. They also won Best Documentary Feature! #BigSonia #NVFF #SoniaWarshawski #Holocaust #Survivor

When I met Sonia Warshawski on the day this photo was taken at her tailor shop in Kansas City, she was pulling weeds from the ground in front of the store. It's not every day you meet a 90 year old (now 91) who moves with such agility and determination, but Sonia is not your average nonagenarian. As I crouched down to help her, I asked why she didn't just let the landscaper handle it and she replied, 'I learned a long time ago not to wait for anyone to do something you can do yourself.' Today was International Holocaust Remembrance Day and Sonia is one of the oldest living survivors of the Holocaust that brutally claimed the lives of more than 6 million innocent men, women, and children including most of Sonia's own immediate and extended family. Her life story is nothing short of remarkable, but I won't spoil it for you. Instead, I invite you to go to BigSonia.com and learn about "Big Sonia," a documentary film by Sonia's granddaughter, Leah Warshawski and her husband, Todd Soliday. Then, if you are able, please make a contribution on that page to help ensure "Big Sonia" makes it to as many theaters as possible. Sonia's story is one we ALL need to witness. #peoplewhoinspiremein2017 #BigSonia #internationalholocaustremembranceday
