In Raquel’s Steps, documentary by Gabriela Bohm
Director: Gabriela Bohm USA-Argentina 2013 / Spanish w/English subtitles, English / 30 minutes
From the shtetl to the tango…more than 30,000 Jewish women were lured from Europe to the New World, only to be devoured in Argentinean prostitution rings run by Jewish criminals. This film is about an ordinary woman — Raquel Liberman — whose story was buried and forgotten, until now. This film traces her journey from wife and mother to exploited woman to a defiantly free woman.
The documentary will be shown on Thursday, 3/14 5:00pm – Maine Historical Society special work-in-progress screening presented by Maine Media Workshops + College Gabriela Bohm present for q&a
