  • "Summary: Up to the outbreak of World War II, there were some 3 1/2 million Jews in Poland. They were a people with a 900 year history, with established traditions and a distinctive way of life. Using graphics, still photographs and inique film footage, this documentary depicts Jewish life in Poland from 1900 to 1939. It starts with the experiences of those who lived in the country and then moves on to the cities, especially Warsaw, Cracow, Lodz and Vilna. The visuals are augmented by interviews with individuals who survived the holocaust and now live in the United States. Building on their reminiscences, it discusses social life, religion, education, culture and the many political factions, leading up to the rising tide of anti-semitism. The result is a fascinating mosaic that conveys a very specific way of life in such a manner that it becomes a major ethnographic study."
