French Film

“The Jewish Cardinal”-Saturday, September 21, 2019, 1pm, Troy Public Library, 100 Second Street, Troy, NY, free, presented by La Fédération Franco-Américaine du New York.  This movie tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood.  Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II-and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from both groups. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities – and may be forced at last to choose his side.  (Source-IMDb) For additional information, call the Troy Public Library at 518-274-7071.
