Come see “A Pocketful of Miracles” in New York City.

Hanka and Dudek Ciesla grew up in a loving Jewish family in Poland. Their idyllic childhood was abruptly shattered when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. After their family is separated, Hanka passes as a Polish Catholic within Germany, and Dudek is sent to Auschwitz. Once they are liberated, Helen and David reunite as orphans and rebuild inspiring lives in America as abstract expressionist artist Helen Ciesla Covensky and businessman and philanthropist David Chase.
