Seniors and Veterans Connect (Burns Branch)
November 4, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
One event on November 25, 2019 at 2:00 pm
Seniors and veterans are invited to enjoy refreshments and free activities. The first Monday will focus on “Remembering the Home Front” and on the 25th there will be a matinee showing of The Woman in Gold (rated PG-13). Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg, she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court.
