The screening of Saved by Language will take place during the ucLADINO Symposium on Tuesday, March 3 at 11:15, followed by a post-screening discussion with directors Bryan Kirschen and Susanna Zaraysky


Saved by Language tells the story of Moris Albahari, a Sephardic Jew from Sarajevo, born in 1930.
Moris spoke his mother tongue, Ladino (Judeo-Spanish), to survive the Holocaust. Sephardic and Bosnian
music are weaved into Moris's story along the background of multi-religious and multilingual Sarajevo, his little
Jerusalem. Explore Moris's story of survival and the preservation of his Sephardic heritage. Meet the remaining
speakers of Ladino in Sarajevo today.
