Film Screening: Flory’s Fame
Join the National Museum of American Jewish History for a screening of the 2014 documentary, Flory’s Flame. The one-hour documentary weaves the life story of NEA National Heritage Fellowship Award winner, Flory Jagoda, with her 2013 Celebration Concert at the US Library of Congress.
As the sole surviving Altarac family member, with most of her family killed during World War II, Flory’s life mission has been to continue her family’s cultural legacy through their music. Her strength of spirit shines through her challenging but ultimately triumphant story.
Flory Jagoda, also known as “The Keeper of the Flame” and “La Nona” (The Grandmother) passed away on Friday, January 29th, 2021. May her memory be a blessing.
