Field Trip to view "Nicky's Family"

Menemsha Films
The 8th grade will visit the South Side Works Cinema to see the documentary Nicky’s Family, a true story about a British man who helped organize the rescue of almost 700 Jewish children out of Czechoslovakia in the days leading up to World War II.  This powerful film tells the story of Sir Nicholas Winton, the children he rescued, and the generations that were impacted by his humble and heroic gesture.  Students will go to see Nicky’s Family next week, May 19.

Read the movie review here.

Students are to bring a bagged lunch to eat at the park near the theater.
