"Memory Wars" is a film series hosted by Russian and East European Studies Network at Queen's University, and co-sponsored by the Jewish Studies program. Four films tackle history and memory: the twentieth-century wars, Jewish life, and the Holocaust, and the twenty-first-century complex "memory wars" that continue to animate politics across Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. All shows are free and open to the public. The movies are introduced by experts from the Queen's Departments of Political Studies and History and the Jewish Studies Program. Screenings are followed by Q&A and discussion. 

Synoposis: The story of three generations of the Sonnenscheins, a Jewish-Hungarian family that began when Hungary was ruled by the Austro-Hungarian empire, changed their name to Sors in order to survive the years of Nazi occupation, and now faces the fallout of the postwar Communist legacy.
