Safer In Silence: Hidden Jewish Roots
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
Safer In Silence is a personal journey made over thirty years and across five continents. Corinne Niox Chateau searches for the truth of her family’s Polish past in order to understand her mother’s distance. Uncovering her family’s hidden Jewish roots, Corinne is pulled into a complex story revealing startling truths that force her to face the patterns of hiding and secrecy that have profoundly affected her life. Corinne’s grandfather, the Polish diplomat Clement Sklalski, was a close friend and colleague of Aristides and Cesar De Sousa Mendes, and it was Aristides’ visa that saved the Skalski family and enabled them to escape to America. Meet the filmmaker, who will be in dialogue with the celebrated film historian Annette Insdorf.
