Miss Rose White is a television film adaptation of the 1985 Barbara Lebow play, A Shayna Maidel, starring Kyra Sedgwick. It first aired on April 26, 1992. The production received five Emmy Awards as well as the Humanitas Prize in the 90 minute category.[1]


Rose White (Sedgwick) is a modern young career woman in post-World War II New York City who has largely relegated her Jewish heritage to scrapbooks and memories. Born in Poland but fortunate enough to escape the country before the Nazi occupation and the Holocaust wiped out her family, she is stunned to learn her older sister somehow survived the horror and is coming to America. The sisters' reunion is complicated by Lusia's (Amanda Plummer) memories of her struggles to survive and the revelation of past family secrets.
