Description For years, Sonia Warshawski has been an inspirational public speaker at schools, churches and prisons, where her stories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager have inspired countless students, prisoners and ex-cons who once felt their own traumas would leave them broken forever. But when Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop, which has thrived in the bottom of a now-abandoned mall for 35 years, she is confronted with an agonizing decision: either open up a new shop-at age 90-or retire. For a woman who admits that she stays busy "to keep the dark parts away", facing retirement dredges up fears she'd long forgot she had, and her traumatic personal past resurfaces. Following Sonia as she continues on the motivational speaker circuit (even as she navigates her own struggles) BIG SONIA explores what it means to be a survivor. Will you let your trauma define you? Or will your past make you stronger?

I am trying to find the comments, but cannot find them. I did not find the comments in this film. It really does not matter, but I wish to hear the comments. Here are a few that might be of interest to you: "Why didn't she move the pyramid? The filmmakers seem to have forgotten that the Egyptians were in a society where the khopeses (those who build the pyramids) did not have any significant role to play in society. They were simply slaves, quite literally, but that is another issue. So, the filmmakers should have dealt with this reality, and not at all tried to keep the Egyptian civilization alive." "The few greeks that are portrayed in this movie, were slaves that were meant to serve the pyramids. They were not just to be used for the purpose of living on the beach, and decorating them. They were the workers in the pyramids. These were not Greek scholars. These were slave workers." "The Egyptian society was not ancient Rome, nor was it ancient Greece. The Egyptians did not build the pyramids or have a god, but rather slave workers and I believe the working class was enslaved because the only way they could work was to build the pyramids. No one ever considered the Egyptians to be gods." "There is no one working class in this film. None of the people that were slaves. But they were not poor. They were not living in squalor, but were living well in lavish houses, and had good medical care. The working class is actually portrayed as being much more prosperous than the priests, scholars, and the high officials, who were meant to be the powerful ruling class." "I am sure the directors must have remembered the fact that the pyramids were built by slaves, and they were not meant to be seen as part of the ancient world, or any way of connecting people with the gods. The pyramid builders were simply some stupid people who had no clue about the basic tenets of the ancient world. They were just slaves." "The director is telling us that the pyramids were made by pygmies and it shows us that he was an idiot for that comment. This is not true. The pyramids were actually made by the same people, and the Egyptians knew how to build them and made it look very artistic." "When we see that this is just a documentary, we actually see that the film makers have no knowledge of the history of Egypt. They simply made this up to try and get a movie out there. There is a good reason they did not know about Egypt, it was a big part of what they were trying to make a movie about. It is a shame to have a documentary about a subject which the director himself only knows very little about. Most of the pyramids were built by slaves and the builders were only interested in making as much money as possible, but did not understand that they were merely a part of a long, complex culture, with many parts. They just saw the pyramids as being part of the pyramids and did not really understand that they were in fact built by slaves." I must admit, that this movie is very informative and good for a non-specialist to watch. It is well made, does not preach, and tells a story that will make you laugh, cry, and ask yourself "What was I thinking?".

This documentary is an amazing way to study the indigenous languages of Bolivia. The film focuses on the Cholos, who speak mainly Tzotzil, the indigenous language of the South American continent. In addition to that, the film examines the Cholos culture, history, and destiny. The Cholos people left their village to seek a better life in the village of Goya. After many years, the Cholos have settled in a small village at the foot of a volcano. There, they had the honor of enjoying the rain-free valley of Goya, where they raise their families. But their dream of a better life is not fulfilled. They suffer from illnesses and infirmities. One of the main issues they are facing is the lack of a permanent source of water. A series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions has devastated their village, and the stream of water has dried up. When the rains stop, the Cholos are forced to grow crops. The Cholos are forced to abandon the land that they love. The film provides an insight into their lives and their culture. The Cholos are so proud of their culture. They're proud of their language, their culture, and of the landscape in which they live. They've dedicated their lives to preserving it. Although there are disagreements in the Cholos society, the language is still maintained and taught. We see the very difference between the way the Cholos communicate and the way the modern people communicate. The natural sounds that are important to the Cholos are not spoken by the modern people. The filmmakers show how the Cholos have made great strides in developing the living conditions in their village. They've created an urban landscape, which is not too different from the rural landscape. This is the beauty of the Cholos way of life. Their works of art are also wonderful. We see that the Cholos are learning a new language, one that's not related to the modern languages they use. Cholos live in harmony with nature. The photos that the Cholos take together with their friends are beautiful. The Cholos are recognized and honored by the other indigenous peoples of South America. They also know that other tribes are able to learn their language as well. It is a very exciting period for the Cholos. In addition to their community living with nature, they have to deal with international conflicts. They're being persecuted and attacked by members of a neighboring tribe. When they confront the aggressors, they are injured. There are many more conflicts with other peoples, and they're facing many difficulties. It is amazing to see the people who are suffering in these conflicts. The film helps you to learn more about the Cholos culture and how they can help in the future. The Cholos are proving that if you're willing to work hard and learn new languages, you can succeed in life.

This is a very good documentary about life on the production line. As the title indicates, the film focuses on the world of the workers at a factory in Lyon, France. It provides a different perspective on life on the assembly line. A lot of the people interviewed in the film talk about the difficult jobs they do. Some of them claim that they enjoy the work, but others say that they are frustrated and mad at the job because they don't have a clear reason to do their job. This movie is very good because it shows the other side of the work, the side of the workers that are getting paid the highest amount to do the work they do. It shows that life on the line is not easy, but we do have to work hard to survive. I think this movie is very important because it shows the lives of these workers. It shows the different lifestyles the workers have, the different jobs they do. Most of the people interviewed in the film say that they do this job for love and joy. They say they love the job, but also say they do it because it is fun. Some people say they work because they don't have a choice. Some people say they work because they have to. They say that they work because they like doing it. All of these things come to show that we don't always have to work hard to get a great life. We can live the good life, not working so hard to make the world a better place. I think that this movie is really interesting. It provides a lot of information about the workers and the life they live. It shows that people can live different lives. I think that this film is very important because it shows the workers' lives. It shows that life on the assembly line is not easy. I really recommend this movie.

What can be said about the search for sacred sites in Pakistan? The Khair-e-Haditha in India is the prime example. The current state of affairs is not the best of these. It is not even the best example of the search of sanctuaries in Pakistan. One must know how lucky they are when they can find such holy sites. They are rarely visited, usually not exploited by other countries. But they are found when a good few people go out and seek for them. This is exactly what happened in the 1980s with the discovery of the valley of Bait-ul-Baitar in North Waziristan. This is only the last finding of this kind. At least several dozen are known to be in existence. The whole place was dominated by the great temple of Bait-ul-Baitar, named after its 'father'. There are some other holy sites in Pakistan. The others are the holy sites in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan. Here in the West, in such places as the Vatican and Palmyra, the Holy Land is often discussed as a place of pilgrimage and therefore sacred. But in these holy sites they are not that sacred. The earliest holy sites, at the beginning of the millennium, had been dedicated to the worship of Christ. Even the first seven Muslim caliphs had not taken the holy places into their names. In each case, they believed that their own faith was the supreme religion and that there is no heaven, only the world of the Hereafter. The holy sites in the Holy Land were never devoted to the worship of a single person. They were also all Christian. The Jerusalem church is only one example. The situation is much the same in the other holy sites, the most important of them being the Wadi Arab in North Waziristan. There are many other sites. There is the town of Khayyam, the last settlement of the Safavid dynasty, that was sacked by the Turks in 816, and was abandoned after the completion of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem. The site is one of the finest examples of Christian holiness that was left on the world. Many other sites are also known. For example, the grounds of the Damascus Arch in the palace of Damascus are reputed to be famous for the birth of Christ. Another example is the Muhammed's tomb. It is reputed to be the most famous of all Christian sites, and is well known. At some point in the last century, this world was divided in two. There was the Holy Land of the Christians and the world of the Muslims. In modern times, the leaders of the Muslim world, with their faith, have been able to build many holy places on the Christian holy places. But the world of the Christians is in a condition of huge degradation. The main goal of the Jews in Jerusalem was the building of a beautiful Jewish temple. They were expelled in AD 70. The fate of the Christians is still the same. They have nothing in common with the Jews, and they still try to destroy the holy sites. The situation has reached the point of self-destruction. People should learn that this situation does not give them a future. We are talking about the worst situation that human beings have ever encountered. A woman in her fifties who spent 10 years of her life as a nun, and worked as an operating assistant in a convent, had not one cigarette in her entire life. A man who lived with his wife in the mountainous areas of Pakistan with only one horse and no regular job, had not one drop of drinking water. What happened to all of them? When the siege of Delhi ended, all of them had nothing to eat and had to live on the streets. They were homeless people. If the situation has reached the point of total destruction of the world, how can they survive in such conditions?

Manny Banos (aka Pancho Villa), a seasoned guerrilla fighter, is responsible for the deaths of more than a thousand people since 1960. Although he is a revered figure for many in the area, he is regarded as a criminal by his critics. Eventually, he becomes a hero among his followers, however. Because of this, the "war of the valley" is waged on his behalf by the government, but it also becomes a battle for the control of the valley and the government's privileges. The land is seen as something of a state secret, and members of the community are wary of revealing that they are living in the hills. Manny believes that the government, which is ruled by a tinpot dictator, is simply making an example of the people. The villagers feel that the government is actually a breeding ground for violence. Although the movie itself is a film on the history of the community, there is a slight secondary focus on the lives of the people who live in the area. The large majority of the time, the people of the valley are happy and content, and nothing particularly stands out. Manny Banos explains the tensions within the community. When the government or the Communist Party forces them into the valley, they go to great lengths to be seen as "comrade" and "commie". Many people leave to make a better life, and the government is forced to take care of them. Manny himself leaves because he believes that he can make a better life for himself. He is impressed by the local propaganda, and tries to keep the peace. While the government forces go to great lengths to hide their atrocities, they sometimes say that they are simply doing the people a favor. At some point, the government makes a public statement that they are here to save the people. The people in the valley are not happy, and the villagespeople have a very tense relationship with each other. The first few minutes of the movie show the village and community peacefully organizing for a party, and the people taking to the streets to celebrate the event. The farmers and peasants argue over how the people are treated, and the tension between the villagers and the government grows. When the government does force the people into the valley, there is an almost unheard-of response. This time, the people are prepared, they gather around the TV and do not want to be seen, they know that it is wrong. They refuse to be afraid. They knew the government would not be able to invade the valley, but they believed that it would be wrong to remain silent. The people were prepared, and the government was forced to go into the valley. They faced the police and government forces, and they responded. The government left, and the people returned to the valley. However, the farmers were not happy. Their land had been taken by the government, and the peasants went on strike. They threatened to assassinate the leader of the village, and they were forced to use the weapons of the villagers to defend themselves. The villagespeople and farmers were prepared, and the two sides squared off. The government retreated, and the peasants attacked the government, while the villagers fought to defend themselves. One of the most remarkable things about the movie is that Manny has this great rapport with his supporters, and he makes them feel that they are the ones who should be happy. Everyone in the valley, including the government, thinks that they have the right to do what they want. Everyone can feel that they are the ones who are winning the war. The government has the same feeling. The government decides to leave the valley, and they return to the countryside. They remain for a short time and the people in the valley feel that they are winners, the government has left, and the people are victorious. The people feel happy, and their lives are completely peaceful. The government leaves, and the people return to the valley, and all of a sudden, the residents have forgotten about the war. The people have nothing to take to the village anymore, and they are happy again. The people feel that they are victorious, and have left the war behind them. The people are happy again, and this is a real feeling that they will never forget.
