Premiere of the Film Two Regimes- Directed by Douglas Darlington of Winding Road Films

About Two Regimes

Two Regimes is the life’s work of two Ukrainian women: a mother, Teodora Verbitskaya (author) and her daughter, Nadia Werbitzky (professional artist).  Teodora wrote about her family’s life from 1927 to 1945 while living under the two regimes of Stalin and Hitler.  Mother and daughter were survivors and witnesses of two genocides: that of the Holodomor (man-made Famine 1932-33 under Stalin) and the Holocaust (1933-1945 under Hitler) while living in Mariupol, Soviet Ukraine.  The Two Regimes Collection contains 118 paintings, 150 sketches and a manuscript – now a book published posthumously titled “Two Regimes . . . A Mother’s Memoir of Wartime Survival” by Teodora Verbitskaya.
