Dear PAAIA members,
My name is Eva Orlowska. I am a member of the Polish community in Seattle. I would like to invite your members in Seattle to view The Lost Requiem, a beautiful documentary by an internationally renowned Iranian director, Khosrow Sinai. This moving film tells the story of the Polish escape from Soviet labor camps to Iran in 1942 and about the lives of Polish refugees among the Iranian people. For his contribution to preserving this untold history, Mr. Sinai has been awarded the prestigious Knights Cross of the Order of Merit of the Polish Republic by President Lech Kaczynski.
