“Even Tears Were Not Enough” Documentary: Wayne, NJ
Sep 30 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

“Even Tears Were Not Enough” is the second documentary by John Righetti and Maria Silvestri. It features scholars and survivors telling the story of the forced deportation of Poland’s Carpatho-Rusyn population by the Polish Communist government in 1947.

The story of the destruction of the community, called Lemkos in Poland, has rarely been told. “Today we can’t event conceive of a state moving tens of thousands of people hundreds of miles away from their home with no notice and the world standing by,” said John Righetti, one of the producers. “But population relocation at the end of World War II was not uncommon. What makes this situation distinct is that the purpose was to dissipate the Lemko Rusyns in a way to absolutely destroy their culture through assimilation.”

Come watch the documentary and discuss it with the producers!
